Can enterprise and 2.5" HDDs live in the same sentence? Sure they can, and Toshiba's newest unit is proof. The company has just introduced a new laptop-friendly, enterprise-grade storage solution offering some pretty wild stats. For starters, it'll ship in sizes up to 900MB, supporting the 6Gb/s SAS Interface and spin at 10,500RPM. Yeah, speedy. The AL13SE drives are built for reliability, and aim to cater to users who can't manage drive failures with a simple "Oh, well."

Toshiba claims that these will withstand "mission-critical" pressures, with a 25% increase in power-on hour reliability from prior generation units. The AL13SE series is also available mounted in a 3.5" bracket for legacy severs. No pricing information is available just yet, but the full spec run-down is below.

" offering some pretty wild stats. For starters, it'll ship in sizes up to 900MB,"


Max. 900MB is pretty wild, indeed. ;)
