World’s First 512GB SSD


SSDs (solid-state-drives) are fast becoming a popular alternative to regular hard-disk drives (HDDs), because they contain no movable parts – this reduces the risk of them breaking in the event of a fall, for example.

The MacBook Air introduced SSDs to the mainstream market in early 2008, but now the latest news that is sending shockwaves in the industry is Toshiba’s – the manufacturer of hard drives and components for many venders – announcement of a 512GB 2.5” solid-state drive.

2.5 inches means that it may not make it to notebook computers just yet – but it’s still a major breakthrough in terms of technological advancement.

Although I’d hate to see the price tag… ;)
