IBM's new notebook drives emphasize quiet

Author: JT Smith

CNET: "Big Blue on Tuesday launched a new line of Travelstar hard drives for notebooks that the
company claims are the world's quietest. Among other sound-reduction features, the new
48GB Travelstar is fitted with sound-dampening padding to reduce excess vibration. New
microcode also allows the arm of the disk to travel more smoothly over contours."
