IBM is readying the release of a PC-oriented hard drive which, it claims, offers the highest storage capacity of any drive in that market segment. The 5400rpm Deskstar 35GP offers 25GB of storage space, three times the capacity of drives found in most of today's consumer PCs. A faster (7200rpm), less capacious (22GB) version called the Deskstar 22GP, is also being prepared, and will be aimed at the business PC market. The Deskstar will be made available in volume to large PC manufacturers in time for the Christmas sales period, said IBM. Gateway, Hewlett-Packard and IBM's own PC operation will be offering machines containing the new drive. The wider channel will receive units in the first quarter of next year, the company added. ®
