Hitachi's smallest hard disk drive

Hitachi Global Storage Technologies has announced plans to squeeze four gigabytes of data onto the 1-inch Microdrive, the world's smallest hard disk drive. The 4GB Microdrive is expected to be available in the Fall of 2003, according to a company release. The new drive will use ultra-miniaturised components, including a new read-write head that is half the size of its predecessor, adds the release.

solid state devices are recommended for portable systems ...
They're pretty reliable. They just guzzle energy at an alarming rate. They're often used in digital camera's and those devices are already known to have a short battery life, let alone with a microdrive.
