Is the hard-drive on it's way out?
What a cool device SanDisk is giving us! Well, selling us, anyway... Fast, reliable, lower power consumption and compatible with current designs, that's pretty nice. Of course, it still needs to be proven in actual personal & business use, but it does look like it will deliver.
Of course, the price tag is a little high, but that's normal for new technology, right? I guess they will show up in higher-end laptops first. I would have imagined that it would be even faster too, but I wonder if SATA or the laptop's BUS have something to do with that...
So, is the hard-drive done for? Not while they're cheaper and "good enough" for our needs. Still, I'm sure hard-drive manufacturers will be having meetings about this SSD (Solid State Drive) in the near future.
