Seagate Laptop Ultrathin
If you’re looking for SSD-like performance at just a fraction of the cost, the Seagate Laptop Thin SSHD offers some gratification.
Ultra-thin laptops, such as Ultrabooks, can create a problem for storage upgrades. Many don’t even let you upgrade the disk at all, and some of those that do have drive bays too shallow for a standard 7mm-thick 2.5in disk. This is where ultra-thin 5mm hard disks, such as Seagate’s Laptop Ultrathin, come in.

Aside from its thinness, the disk is a standard laptop model in terms of mounting points and interface, so, depending on your laptop, you may be able to use it in 2.5in drive bays that support 7mm and 9.5mm drives. However, there are better-value thicker drives available, so we’d only recommend getting this drive for its intended purpose. The Ultrathin weighs 93g, which might be important if you want to keep your Ultrabook lightweight.
With only space for a single disk platter, the Laptop Ultrathin range tops out at 500GB in capacity; larger capacities would require a second platter and would make the disk too thick. 500GB of capacity works out at 11p per GB, which is quite expensive for a mechanical hard disk.
