Earlier today, Western Digital announced two additions to their hard-drive range, including a 1 terabyte (1024 Gigabytes) 2.5" Laptop Hard-disk drive and a 750 GB 2.5" Laptop Hard-disk drive.

Western digital was able to expand mobile hard disk space to 1 TB and 750 GB by "A slight increase in overall drive height has driven storage capacity
for 2.5-inch form factor drives upwards to a realm once thought to be impossible. "

The hard disks are also claimed to be "whisper silent", and to run very quietly, even during heavy operations.

The product page also states that the laptop hard drive may not fit into all notebook computers
as it is "12.5mm high", and to check your notebooks manual before purchasing a drive.

The Western Digital Scorpio Blue 1 TB and 750 GB SATA Hard Drives are available now from Western Digital's online store.

Old news. Office Depot stores have been getting these for a few weeks.

On the shelves (as in not early shipments)? Office Depot doesn't list any on their website and online retailers like NewEgg, etc don't list them. At least not yet...

No, it's 12.5mm high, doesn't fit in a PS3 and most notebooks.
