Solid storage for laptops

TweakTown managed to get their hands on a pre-production solid state drive from Team.  At 16GB and a 2.5" profile, this is designed to be a rugged hard drive for a laptop.  With no moving parts, the noise and heat that most HDD create are completely absent.  Unfortunately, the large speed benefits that SSDs were hoped to have is also absent, but don't sneer at a cool, quiet and nearly indestructible (under normal usage) HDD.

"It has been said that, within the next ten years, SSD (Solid State Drives) will replace the aging hard drive, and in the

interim HDD / SSD hybrids are likely to increase in popularity as the storage technology of choice. Today we get our first

look at SSD technology as we check out Team Group's 16GB 2.5-inch notebook solid state disk. At 16GB the drive is not a

monster when it comes to total storage capacity, but as we take a look at this pre-production product it should give us a

good introduction to the potential of SSD technology."
