Samsung has recently introduced a new 1TB hard drive in a 2.5″ form-factor. Now, there are already quite a few of these capacity hard drives in a similar form factor, but Samsung is the first to do it a 9mm, as opposed to the usual 12.5mm design.

The extra-thin hard drive platters allow for a more efficient two platter design instead of 3, allowing Samsung to do more with less space. If the computer manufacturer decided to go with a larger hard drive, it could have enabled a much larger capacity on the drive.
