Avatar's Personal Data Cartridge (PDC) technology designed for a notebook's media bay, offers the first high capacity, high performance 2.5-inch removable cartridge disk drive that fits under the keyboard. An industry first. It's small enough to fit in your shirt pocket, yet large enough to offer 170MB at less than 12 msec average access time.

No longer constrained by the capacity of floppy diskettes, users can move high capacity files such as full motion video, spreadsheets, CAD files, and briefcase file transfers, from their primary hard drive to an Avatar HARDiskette. And with Avatar's HARDiskette, users can interchange these files between sub-notebooks, notebooks, desktops, and workstations with the same ease of using a 1.44MB floppy disk.

Avatar offers both IDE and SCSI-2 (with integrated floppy) interfaces. For the next generation in high performance removable storageñget Avatar's 170MB HARDiskette.
