Shock resistant HDD? We don’t think so.

WD pushes out super-slim shock-resistant Ultrabook drive • The Register.

500GB on a single platter for a laptop 2.5 inch hard disk drive.  Quite how shock resistant it might prove is another matter. “400G” doesn’t mean much to most people. Given that many of the hard disk drives we see through with mechanical failure (usually making a clicking or a buzzing noise) and are a result of physical shock, as such any improvement would be good.
