Toshiba develops 100GB hard disk for notebooks: Yikes.

Toshiba Corp. has developed a hard disk drive for notebook computers that can hold 100GB of data. The company expects to begin selling it later this year, it said Thursday.

The new drive offers a quarter more storage space than the company’s current highest capacity notebook drive and is the first 2.5-inch drive from any manufacturer to store 100GB, according to Toshiba.
