Solid-State Drives: SSDs Improve the Mobile Experience

Every hard disk will fail. That’s a reality few of us care to think about, although if you’ve ever tried to do work on your laptop on a plane you’ve been profoundly reminded that it doesn’t take much movement to cause a hiccup. That’s not good for the spinning hard disk that you rely on. Solid-state drives promise to radically change how your mobile PC experience. SSDs give you faster boot up times, faster application load times, longer battery life, and you can toss them across the room (not that you’d want to). In this video, Intel engineers do a side-by-side demo between solid-state drive and hard disk drive technology, and discuss how SSDs are not just for the mobile user: they can save energy for IT folks in servers. They also toss the SSD across the room.
