Notebook hard drives are basically using the 2.5 inches specifications, and this hard drive design thickness is 9.5mm, part of the large-capacity 2.5-inch hard disk thickness reaches up to 12.5mm. This thickness level has no problem for an ordinary notebook, but with the advent of ultrabook, the 7mm ultra-thin notebook hard drivers are liked by the manufacturers and users, but it looks that the 7mm is not ultrabook’s best choice. The latest news said that in order to make the ultrabook body thickness and the overall design more in line with its positioning, hard drive manufacturers will upgrade the hard drive for ultrabook, while the thickness of the upgraded 2.5-inch hard drive will reach even more alarming 5mm, this design will gradually accepted by most manufactures. Compared to a 1.8-inch mini notebook hard drive, the performance of the 2.5-inch drives is even better, so the manufacturers tend to use ultra-thin 2.5-inch notebook hard drive rather than the 1.8-inch notebook hard drive, and even the 1.8-inch hard drive is currently mainly based on the thickness of 8mm, which can not be ultrabook ultra-thin design services either, so by contrast, the 2.5 inches 5mm ultra-thin design will be the future ultrabook hard drive’s mainstream design.
