When it comes to modern technology,size matters. In compact devices, every available nook and cranny is taken up –so, when a hard drive shrinks its physical dimensions, its big news.
System builders and enthusiasts seeking a serious speed boost for their laptops now have access to higher-capacity Seagate hybrid solid state hard drives (SSHD) from distributor Platinum Micro.Available in 500GB and 1 terabyte capacities, the new drives delivery the performance gains associated with solid state drives (SSD), while retaining the capacity and cost advantages of mechanical hard drives (HDD).
Whether you’re in an office or at home,there is one consistent expectation of technology today: it should be cool.That’s something monitor maker AOC is working to incorporate into every one of its products in an age where computing isn’t just functional, but also just plain awesome.
Where hard drives are concerned, three metrics really matter: capacity, reliability and speed. That’s why Platinum Micro is enthusiastic about the Seagate Constellation ES and CS range of 3.5-inch devices. Designed for enterprise-grade storage, these devices push the limits of hard drive capacity, with up to 4TBavailable in a single drive.
With the addition of the AOC Smart Display to its range of screens, distributor Platinum Micro is making more intelligent devices available to its resellers and end-users. From leading monitor-maker AOC, the A2258PW Smart Display integrates an Android engine and Internet connection, becoming a multi-purpose unit which is functional whether a computer or other device is connected to it or not.
Technology distributor Platinum Micro is to distribute computer locks, laptop bags and accessories from South African manufacturer Legion, extending the reach of the vendor while providing resellers with more options to meet the needs of their customers.

Well-known IT components distributor, Ingram Micro, changes its name with effect from 1 October 2010 to Platinum Micro.
As previously announced in July 2010, the MB Technologies Group acquired the remaining 50% of Ingram Micro South Africa and is now the sole shareholder. Under the joint venture agreement the local joint venture was granted the right to use the Ingram Micro name in South Africa until 30 September 2010. Pursuant to the buy-out and the expiration of the licence to use the Ingram Micro name, Ingram Micro South Africa has been re-branded as Platinum Micro. The new name creates a link to the MB Technologies Group’s majority shareholder, Royal Bafokeng Holdings and their extensive platinum interests.
MB Technologies Group CEO, Glenn Fullerton, said that apart from the change of name it is business as usual for the distributor, which will continue to focus mainly on components and operate as an independent division within the MB Technologies Group. The change in shareholding has been in place for a few months now post the Competition Commissions’ approval of the transaction.
“Looking forward, Platinum Micro will focus on components, where we have top brands including AirLive, Asus, Billion, Kingston, Microsoft, Samsung, Seagate, Targus, Yealink, and on further development of niche markets,” said General Manager, Ricky Correia. “We are also taking on new products with exclusive agency rights that are ideal for the retail market and have already proved highly successful in the US and UK.”
Correia added that the technology surrounding these new products, both of which break conventional boundaries in the field of charging mobile phone and IT products, is green.
“We expect demand to grow exponentially over the next two years. In the local market major IT, leisure and home goods retailers are already expressing strong interest ahead of the formal launch of the products later this year. We have a strong base and the green factor is a powerful incentive. Overall, Platinum Micro is well placed to achieve growth.”
Other companies in the MB Technologies Group are Tarsus Technologies (a distributor of leading international IT hardware brands in Southern Africa), ACT (ink, toner, paper and other IT consumables), Printacom (OKI printing solutions), ChannelCapital (financial services including funding and insurance for resellers), and ChannelWare (distribution of IT products ad services to small and medium business). All are well known and respected distribution brands.
