SSD Solid State Drives
« on: March 31, 2008, 00:39:30 AM »
I think everyone heard something about that, a hdd without moving parts and mechanical failures but based on a new NAND flash memory module. Read the below link from sanDisk. I want one NOW!

It's not the future, it's the present. I believe that in mostly 2 years we can have all cheap SSD's. DELL is giving them as standard in her new laptops.

The most slow thing in a PC nowadays is HDD. If it gets slower, what would we do these n-cores?

Is it expensive?
