+ - WD Scorpio Drive, 250 Gigs For Notebooks->

Submitted by

MojoKid writes "2.5" mobile hard drives don't get nearly as much coverage as their more common 3.5" counterparts, but there have been significant advances made in this space that warrant some attention. Western Digital, for example, has released a high-capacity 250GB 2.5" SATA hard drive, the Scorpio WD2500BEVS, that sports a few proprietary technologies dubbed WhisperDrive, ShockGuard, and SecurePark, that improve the drive's acoustic profile, power consumption, and durability. And despite being a 5400RPM drive, its performance characteristics put it well ahead of most other 2.5" drives with similar spindle speeds and just behind a full-sized desktop hard drive running at 7200RPM. With hard drive speeds being the limiting performance factor in many instances, a drive like this could make for a worthwhile notebook upgrade."

On the panel are Jenova Chen (flOw , Cloud, Spore DS), Johnathan Blow (Indie Game Jam, Experimental Gameplay Workshop, IGF winner "Braid"), Jon Mak ( Everyday Shooter), and Kyle Gabler (Experimental Gameplay Project, Tower of Goo et all.)

I'd love to hear from the community — what questions do you have for these four brilliant game designers?
