    [news=http://www.seagate.com/images/logos/logo_4home_seagate.gif]Seagate, the largest hard drive manufacturer in the world, has started to ship its first drive for notebooks based on perpendicular recording techniques, a shift that increases capacity by 25 percent.

    The Momentus 5400.3, a 2.5-inch diameter hard drive shown off last year, is designed for notebooks that hold 160GB of storage, the equivalent of 40,000 songs or nearly three hours of high-definition video. The drive relies on perpendicular recording, in which the bits are stacked up vertically. This increases the amount of data that can be contained on a single platter. Prices were not released.
