With an MSRP of $149.99, the new WD Scorpio Blue is a very attractive upgrade option for notebook users for sure. Supposedly this drive runs cool and quiet and has a low power consumption, all of which is perfect for notebook applications.

  Features of the WD Scorpio Blue include:
  --  Advanced Format technology - Technology being pioneered by WD and
      adopted by other drive manufacturers to increase media format
      efficiencies, thus enabling larger drive capacities.
  --  WhisperDrive(TM) - WD's exclusive WhisperDrive technology combines
      state-of-the-art seeking algorithms to yield one of the quietest
      2.5-inch hard drives on the market. These algorithms also optimize the
      way a drive seeks for data, which significantly improves power
      consumption.
  --  ShockGuard(TM) - Leading-edge ShockGuard technology protects the drive
      mechanics and platter surfaces from shocks.
  --  SecurePark(TM) - WD's SecurePark technology parks the recording heads
      off the disk surface during spin up, spin down, and when the drive is
      off. This ensures the recording head never touches the disk surface
      resulting in improved long term reliability due to less head wear, and
      improved non-operational shock tolerance.
  --  Fast and efficient - Ultra-fast 3 gigabits per second (Gb/s) SATA
      interface speed yields performance fit for demanding mobile
      applications.
  --  Tested for compatibility - WD performs extensive tests on hundreds of
      systems and a multitude of platforms in its FIT Lab(TM) and Mobile
      Compatibility Lab to give our customers confidence that our drives
      will work in their systems.
