Solid state drive to replace hard disc drive.

A while back we were forced to perform a disc drive transplant, since the old drive started making horrible dying noises. Our computer mechanic guessed the old drive was just worn out mechanically. This event came to mind when we read about Samsung’s new Solid State Drive, a flash memory without moving parts that cannot crash. At least not mechanically. SSD is not just mechanically safe, it is also faster than any disc drive, and the allow laptops to be built smaller lighter and quieter. The only problem is that SSDs do not yet have the capacity of disc drives. But with this memory Samsung has managed to join together several flash memory units and have reached 64GB. Another step on the way to finally retiring disc drives. brbr
