gadget called Seagate Ultramobile HDD. The device can be installed in the tablet with virtually any form factor. HDD size does not exceed five millimeters. In Seagate noted that their development practically does not reduce battery life of tablets and does not lead to a drop in performance. But the price compared with the same amount of flash memory is much smaller.
