Oh, so 160GB just isn't good enough for you, huh? Dell and Alienware (who seem to be all about this beefy storage thing) are stuffing new 250GB 2.5-inch hard drives into a few of their laptops, an industry first. You can even stick a pair of them into the Alienware m9700 and Dell XPS M2010, for a full 500GB of breathing room. The best news is that all that storage won't break the bank -- relatively speaking, of course -- since the m9700 configures with the 5,400RPM, 8MB buffer, 1.5GB/s SATA drive for the same price as a 7,200RPM 160 gigger, at $300 above the standard 80GB config. No word on who's supplying the part, since Fujitsu's 250 and 300GB drives run at 4,200RPM, but it's available now.
