Hard disk drives are today\'s fastest permanent storage media and have a large capacity. For this two reasons they are the most used storage medium in computers and servers. When buying a new hard disk, there are three important things to consider:\
- The connection of the disk to the computer or other device you will be using it with has a big influence on the speed with which data can be read from/written to the disk. Make sure the connection of the disk you buy is compatible with your computer!\
- The rotational speed is also important for the speed with which data can be read from/written to the disk and determines the time it takes to find a file on the disk.\
- Last but not least, the storage capacity of the disk, i.e. the amount of data that can be stored on the disk.

IBM continues its tradition of mobile storage leadership with the IBM Travelstar 40GN hard drive. The IBM Travelstar 40GN hard drive uses proven IBM technologies such as TrueTrack Servo, IBM Drive Fitness Test (DFT), and Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.) to help maintain high performance and fast seek times.

The innovative hard drive design combines AFC Media, Fluid Dynamic Bearing (FDB) motor technology, an ATA-100 interface, IBM giant magnetoresistive (GMR) head technology, Partial Response Maximum Likelihood (PRML) digital channel, a head load/unload feature, and Enhanced Adaptive Battery Life Extender (ABLE) 3.0. This design provides the exceptional quietness, storage capacity, performance, power management, quality, and reliability required by today's notebook systems.

With this drive, IBM has once again redefined state-of-the-art storage for mobile computing. The reduced acoustics, high speeds, and capacities of IBM Travelstar drive support superior digital content creation capabilities, higher-quality digital audio and video, and significantly faster processing for data-intensive multimedia and Internet applications.
