[access-uk] Re: NC10 and solid state drives

Hi Chris.

Well, possibly, but then they said that about videos yet they're still being sold even though we have dvd and now blue ray. Besides which, it will be quite some time before SSD drives come up to scratch with their terabyte touting mechanical drives not to mention cost effective.

All the best, Ibrahim.

Oh wow! So hard drives will eventually be a thing of the past?

It is undoubtedly possible to install a whole operating system on most
SSDs however given their price the operating system and critcal
applications is all you might store on the SSD itself and use the
machine in the cloud.  They are however still quite expensive and the
sweet spot in the market seem to me to be about 64GB to 128GB afterwich
it is silly prices.  Undoubtedly also SSDs do boost performance however
the more performance you have in the machine to start with the great the
gain.

I know of an individual who installed an SSD into a small factor laptop
(not a Netbook) and was getting boot times under 10 seconds, however as
I pointed out earlier it is very expensive.  Within five years however
these devices will be common and cheap enough to deploy in much wider
settings but for the moment the traditional hard still has its role.

A certain amount of optomisation has occurred with Windows 7.0 for SSDs
but I haven't read the data too carefully myself.
