Western digital was able to cram 1TB of data into this new laptop drive. They are 34% taller at 12.5mm as compared to the standard 9.5mm height.
This drive appears to mainly be developed for the consumer electronics market, but they do advertise shock resistant features:
"ShockGuard™ - Leading-edge ShockGuard technology combines firmware and hardware advancements to meet the highest combined shock tolerance specifications required for mobile and notebook applications.
SecurePark™ - Parks the recording heads off the disk surface during spin up, spin down and when the drive is off. This ensures the recording head never touches the disk surface, resulting in improved long-term reliability due to less head wear and improved shock tolerance. "
You can only get it packaged in a USB passport (WD10TEVT) for now and the price is $249.99
