Every once in a while, we really like to share a deal. We’re buying in big on this one to upgrade our fleet of notebooks.
Amazon.com is offering the Seagate Momentus XT 500 GB hard drive for only $99.99 with free shipping. This is a hybrid hard drive that uses SSD technology to dramatically boost speed. The result is a hard drive that keeps pace, and even runs past, some of the fastest desktop hard drives out there. The technology is designed to shine the best in real-world usage patterns, but even can be confirmed by looking at the benchmarks.
This drive will work in any conventional SATA 2.5-inch hard drive bay, no special hardware or software is needed to use it. And yes, Mac and PC users alike will enjoy the performance boost… even Linux users, and we presume those bravely running Haiku even.
The $99.99 price is clearly a black friday sale, even though not listed as such. Amazon.com continues to offer the smaller 320 GB variant for $13 more than this drive.
