Dell said it is the first PC supplier to start shipping consumer models with a 1Tbyte hard drive, far outstripping the storage capacity on most business machines.

A Dell XPS machine, and the Alienware-branded Aurora and Area 51 gaming desktop computers are equipped with 1Tbyte hard drives from Hitachi Global Storage Technologies.

The extra hard drive capacity provides enough space to store millions photos, 16 days of DVD quality video or a million minutes of music, said Dell.

“Digital content use is exploding in the consumer market – with this 1Tbyte hard drive, a lifetime of memories, music and other information can be made, stored and shared with others,” said Neil Hand, Dell vice president for worldwide consumer marketing in the consumer product group.

“This type of capability used to be available only to the largest corporations. With the spectacular advancement in hard drives and the engineering in our systems, we’re now able to bring it to consumers,”
said Hand.
