Fujitsu has launched a 200GB Serial ATA 2.5in hard disk drive designed for notebook computers, the most capacious of its kind, the company claimed today. It said the drive's size makes it ideal for vendors who want to equip their laptops with PVR functionality, or for anyone producing "digital home appliance" products.

The MHV2200BT spins at 4,200rpm and provides average read and write times of 12 and 14ms, respectively. It's got 8MB of cache memory. The drive can withstand 300G of operating shock and 900G of non-operating shock, Fujitsu claimed.

The drive typically consumes 1.6W, the manufacturer said, falling to 0.5W or even 0.13W in its two 'slumber' modes. Fujitsu said the drive complies with Reduction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) regulations.

The drive is due to ship around the world at the end of May. ®
