Western Digital Ships Behemoth Scorpio Blue 1TB 2.5" Notebook Hard Drive

Oh yes, Western Digital has released a new Scorpio Blue 2.5" (9.5mm) internal SATA III hard drive with a massive 1TB storage capacity using only 2 platters that is compatible with all standard notebooks. The new 1TB Scorpio Blue WD10JPVT hard drive is the first 1TB 2.5" hard drive that has started shipping on the market. It isn't a Ferrari at 5400RPM, but at least it's a minor improvement over the previous, slightly thicker 12.5mm 1TB model at only 5200RPM. Western Digital has designed its Scorpio Blue behemoth to have a low power consumption for longer battery life performance and coupled it with WhisperDrive technology for quite performance. The WD Scorpio Blue 1TB 2.5" hard drive is now shipping and available at retailers for $140. Or a bit cheaper at Newegg
