200 Gigabytes of Perpendicular Love, Samsung Style

Seems like just yesterday when the world was all excited about OWC's packaging of a 2.5-in. 160GB 7200rpm drive Seagate Momentus drive with perpendicular recording capability. No time to enjoy that view: Samsung just upped the stakes with a 2.5-inch perpendicular-recording drive of its own. Capacity? 200GB. The company says the SpinPoint MP1 with SATA interface is currently only for enterprise customers; you folks at home will have to settle for the SpinPoint M5 Series, with single-disk options ranging from 60GB to 160GB, out in mid April, followed by a dual-disk 250GB config due later on.
