SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Hitachi Global Storage Technologies (Hitachi) is today announcing volume shipment of the industrys highest-capacity, highest-performing notebook hard drive with new optional data encryption technology.

With double the capacity and a 22-percent1 performance improvement over its predecessor, the 200-gigabyte (GB), 7200 RPM Travelstar™ 7K200 reigns supreme as the leader in this elite notebook hard drive segment. Now, with optional hard-drive level “Bulk Data Encryption” technology from Hitachi, the Travelstar 7K200 offers even greater cachet to notebook users by helping to guard against data loss and piracy.

Dell and Alienware will be the first to offer the Travelstar 7K200 on select systems. It is available immediately on all Dell™ XPS™ notebooks and on all Alienware® notebooks. Customers demanding the highest capacity storage found on mobile systems can create dual hard drive configurations with 400GB of available storage on the Aurora m9700 and the XPS M2010.

“Today’s technology enthusiasts demand performance from every facet of their notebook computer,” said Neil Hand, vice president, Dell’s worldwide consumer marketing product group. “Incorporating best-in-class features, like the high-performance Travelstar 7K200, underscores Dell and Alienware’s commitment to meet and exceed our mobile customers’ expectations.”
