Seagate ups the ante, 500GB per platter

1 platter or 2? Is less platters better? 1 less spinning surface, more room (relatively) inside of that 3.5″ hard drive? Less debris to be collected over a few years of use? Seagate has announced that platter density just got even more crowded. Move over boot sector, and make room for more storage. Pushing the density from 300GBs (roughly) per platter to 500GBs. So instead of a 2 platter 750 GB drive you’ll have a 2 platter 1 TB drive. Yay! All I gotta say is “Mo’ data, mo’ problems.”

Western Digital, your move.
