Posted in Hard Drives,Hitachi,News,Notebooks by Darrin Olson on November 1st, 2006

Hitachi Notebook DriveNot long after Seagate announced its disc level security encryption, Hitachi was right behind them unveiling new 2.5 inch notebook drives for 2007 that have greater capacities, require less power due to flash memory utilization, and have encryption security right on the disk.
