AF drive migration happens automatically in the background. The drive’s performance is not affected, and there is no need for the time-consuming utilities that are required by other AF-enabled drives.

Enter Seagate Ingenuity

Until recently, system integrators and OEMs had no choice but to limit their thinner, fully functional computing designs to high-end devices. The available hard drive options were either too costly, performed too slowly, or both.

Seagate Laptop Thin HDD drives leverage current laptop drives in both material and product design to provide the world’s first 7mm 2.5-inch form factor drive. The result is affordable, thin storage for entry-level to mainstream laptops, high-end netbooks, thin ultraportables and slim-computing devices.
