Explosive worldwide demand for laptops has thrust makers of 2.5-inch hard drives into a pitched battle for the business of laptop builders, and the scrappy drive industry is brandishing its traditional weaponshigh storage capacity, super-speedy performance and stingy power consumption. But organizations and consumers alike want more than the incremental gains the drive industry has delivered on several of these fronts.

Consumers want pure efficiency and powerful mobility in their everyday computing, demanding more from their laptops than ever before.

Laptop makers continue to strive to extract every ounce of benefit that physics can deliver. They challenge the component suppliers to overcome technology obstacles and to combine quality with sustainable supply at a price point that consumers are willing to pay. To serve this market, laptop makers must offer out-of-the-box products that meet these stringent requirements.

For their part, hard drive manufacturers continue to innovate with technologies. Says Joni Clark of Seagate Technology, hybrid hard drive technology, the latest pivotal storage technology, uses a small amount of flash memory to deliver performance, reliability and power-efficiency improvements unattainable through the natural evolution of hard drive technology.
