Internet Security Threat Report 2014

IBM, which has always been pretty nifty at hard drive technology, yesterday said it will ship a 75GB hard drive next month. The Deskstar 75GXP is aimed at the desktop market and whirrs around at 7,200 revolutions a minute. At the same time, IBM also said it will release a 40GB drive, the Deskstar 40GV, which like, the former, uses new density technology. Both drives use glass rather than aluminium platters which the company claims gives more stability at higher speeds. There is additional anti-shock technology included in the drives. IBM did not reveal the prices of the new devices, but said they were already shipping in limited quantities to Dell and Gateway, and were in some of its own PCs. ®
