Enter Seagate Ingenuity

Until recently, system integrators and OEMs had no choice but to limit their thinner, fully functional computing designs to high-end devices. The available hard drive options were either too costly, too slow performing or both.

Seagate Laptop Thin HDD drives leverage current laptop drives in both material and product design to provide the world's first 7mm 2.5-inch form factor drive. The result is affordable, thin storage for entry-level to mainstream laptops, high-end netbooks, thin ultraportables and slim-computing devices.


ST500LM021 Thin Hard Drive Perfect For:

  • Building entry-level to high-performance ultraportables laptops
  • Creating thin, light netbooks without compromising storage or affordability
  • Designing slim consumer electronics devices
  • Protecting your sensitive data
