IBM (NYSE: IBM) said in a statement its 7,200 rpm Deskstar 75GXP drive
for desktop computers held 75 gigabytes of data, more than 10 times
the capacity of drives found in the average home personal computer.
A single one of the new drives can now store the equivalent of up to
159 music compact discs or "the data contained in a stack of documents
20 times taller than the Washington Monument," the statement said. The
monument is just over 555 feet tall. Twenty times that height is
11,100 feet, or 2.1 miles.
Hey, Bill... Please let me know when these become available for my
Thinkpad 380Z. ;-)
