Seagate Proves That Bigger is Better  

Seagate Announces World's Highest Areal Density Hard Drive

Now you can store more data than you ever thought possible.
On September 16th, 2003, Seagate introduced the world’s first hard drive to store 100 Gbytes of data on a single 3.5-inch platter. This new addition to the Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 family achieves a 200-Gbyte capacity using only two platters, and offers the choice of a Parallel ATA (PATA) or native Serial ATA (SATA) interface. Shipments are scheduled to begin in November. More

I don't think that Seagate went to all this trouble to piddle around with a 200 GB hard drive. You can walk down to any corner computer store and buy one of those today. Nope, I thkn they're going to start with 500 gigs and go up from there. Considering the voracious appetite for disk space of today's apps (AND music, And videos, AND...), it only makes sense to me.
