Acer TravelMate series notebooks now equipped with fastest, largest HDD

Hahahahahahaha, I just noticed the Pixelmator watermark. Oh well.

Today, Acer and Seagate announced that the TravelMate series of notebooks will now be equipped with 2.5-inch Seagate Momentus 5400.6 hard drives up to 500GB with a transfer rate of 87MB/s. The drives are ultra quiet because of SoftSonic fluid-dynamic bearing motors and they’re capable of withstanding 1,000 Gs of non-operating shock and 350 Gs of operating shock. And as is the usual these days, the drives come with sensors that detect free falls, so your drives don’t get borked.
