Western Digital Ships 1TB Mobile Drive… That’s Right, 1TB In Your Laptop! [UPDATED]

If you’re on the go and you need lots of room for porn and MP3s data on your laptop, you were limited to 500GB of storage. Until today that is. Western Digital has announced the Scorpio Blue one terabyte drive. Here’s the kicker: It’s $250 USD:

The WD Scorpio Blue 750 GB and 1 TB hard drives have a 12.5 mm form factor1 and are ideally suited for use in portable storage solutions, such as the newly released My Passport™ Essential™ SE Portable USB Drives. Other applications include select notebooks and small form factor desktop PCs, where quiet and cool operation are important. Both WD Scorpio Blue drives deliver high-performance with a 3 gigabits per second (Gb/s) transfer rate.

“The convergence of the growing mobile computing and digital media trends produces demand for desktop-like capacities in portable devices,” said Jim Morris, senior vice president and general manager of client systems at WD. “Our new WD Scorpio Blue drives enable people to take even more of their digital collections with them wherever they go and, realizing the value of their data, back up their notebooks on their My Passport drives.”

Apparently the drives are available now. So if you have lots of porn and MP3s data that you need to tote around with, head to your local computer store now.

UPDATE: Apparently, Mac users need not apply. According to TUAW, this drive doesn’t fit into MacBooks. FAIL!
