Toshiba just launched a new set of 2.5″, 7200 rpm hard disk drives, and it looks like they’ll be seen in everything from netbooks to desktops. The largest capacity drive is half a terabyte.
A high-volume drive may appeal to some netbook users attempting to use their machines for more than casual use. OEMs have already shown interest in the drives, according to industry sources.
Toshiba’s netbook sales now account for 10% of Toshiba’s PC sales in the US, just three months after bringing its netbooks to the US market.
