Coming to Your Laptop: 1.2TB Hard Drives

PC World reports: "Fujitsu is expected to announce a breakthrough this week that could lead the company to produce hard drives with storage capacities of up to 1.2TB. ... The patterned alumina nanohole media was created via a Perpendicular Magnetic Recording (PMR) processes using nano-imprint lithography (enabling discrete distance from bit to bit or track to track), anodic oxidation and cobalt electrodeposition at a density of 100-nanometer-pitch nanoholes suitable to existing head technology."

The wonders of Perpendicular Magnetic Recording, I can hardly wait for these drives. Hopeful it will reduce per terabyte cost of a SAN. Which I figure is $4-5,000 per terabyte of raw storage.
