Maxtor enters 7200 RPM category with new hard drive

Maxtor has launched two new hard drives -- the DiamondMax Plus 2500 and the DiamondMax 3400 -- the former being the company's first foray into the 7200 revolution per minute (RPM) category of hard drives.

The DiamondMax Plus 2500, with capacity points of 7.5GB and 10GB, 512K cache buffer and a 7200 RPM spindle speed, is ideal for high-performance desktop systems according to Maxtor.

The DiamondMax 3400 has capacity points of 3.4GB up to 13.6GB and holds 3400 megabytes per platter. The drive features 9.0 millisecond seek time, 5400 RPM spindle speed, 256K cache buffer and UltraDMA 33 compatibility, which improves throughput speeds by doubling the data transfer rate to 33MBps.

Both drives come with a three-year warranty and are backed by Maxtor's "No Quibble" service support.

The drives will be available later this month, pricing for them will be released at that time.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
