The rivalry between major laptop hard drive makers heated up on Sunday when Samsung Electronics Co. said in March it will debut a new 500-gigabyte model, larger than any other currently available.
The announcement came days after Hitachi Ltd. announce it will introduce a 500 GB laptop hard drive in February. Currently, the largest laptop drive on the market is a 320 GB model by Western Digital Corp.
Samsung's Spinpoint M6 500 GB hard drive is scheduled to launch in March.
