Mtron's 128GB Solid State Drive (SSD)

It looks like more and more laptops will be incorporating solid state drives in the near future as Mtron, a Korean based company has just finished development of a 1.8 inch ZIF type SSD for laptops.

Solid State Drives, according to some industry experts enables laptops to boot up faster because it has no moving parts and enhances notebook performance, however, most test done on current laptops with solid state drives, like the MacBook Air, reveals that there is a very minimal increase in boot up time. One disadvantage of Solid State drives is that it increases the price of laptops and before Mtron's 128GB SSD, the highest capacity SSD drive we've seen so far is only 32GB.

As more and more companies like Mtron try to develop solid state drives, hard disk drives may be replaced in the near future.
