If we’ve learned anything about fancy cars, it’s that things that are sleek and fast are cool. So Hitachi’s new 2.5-inch Z-Series falls right in line, boasting a height of only 7mm and speeds of 7200rpm. The drives will be coming in 160GB, 250GB and 320GB sizes. They’ll allow companies to make their notebooks even slimmer — which is always a good thing. Hitachi has a thing or two to say about SSDs in the PR as touting, touting the affordability of the Z-Series. Which is always a good thing.
The Z-Series will be available starting in August. Pricing is currently unknown.
