Super-slim, 5mm HDD Provides Lenovo Multimode PC with 500GB of Storage at an Affordable Price
MALAYSIA — Jan. 08, 2014 — Seagate Technology plc, a worldwide leader in storage solutions, today announced that it is working with Lenovo, the world’s largest PC maker, to deliver YOGA 2, a new multimode PC powered by the Seagate Laptop Ultrathin HDD. Both companies will demo the YOGA 2 multimode PC at CES 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“Seagate has had an ongoing strategic alliance with Lenovo for many years. By delivering the technology that enables their YOGA 2 with the Laptop Ultrathin HDD, we have succeeded in delivering a high-capacity, lightweight laptop that addresses the needs of consumers and commercial users,” said Scott Horn, Seagate vice president of marketing. “Redefining the laptop and tablet space, this new drive enables consumers to enjoy PC-like storage capacity in a thin and light Ultrabook design.”
“Besides SSD, now we can offer more storage options for our customers with Seagate’s ultra-thin, high-capacity HDD,” said Wentao Yang, Global Procurement VP of Lenovo. “We have extensive collaboration with Seagate across our laptop, desktop, all-in-one and servers, helping deliver innovative products with extreme performance and reliability.”
Leveraging the company’s experience with ultra-portable applications like iPods, MP3 players, and handheld video recorders, the Seagate 2.5-inch Laptop Ultrathin HDD is just 5mm thin while weighing in at a mere 3.3oz— about the same as a light bulb. Its slim, rugged design allows it to be utilized in new emerging applications like convertible and detachable storage.
