@JMWilliams: NAND flash has its own read/write limitations and so will need to have a lot more space as buffer, just like the hard disks do, but for a different reason. NAND flash needs bad block management and wear leveling and this affects the throughput. In regular PCs, this is not a big deal. But, if you want to keep data safe for decades, no hard disk is good enough either. I guess keeping it online (gmail?) is a better bet.

Excellent, I would say. It adds more punch to the portable computing devices. However it still needs to be determined how widespread that pcie interface will be supported by vendors.

My understanding is that you use the SSD for the OS, for fast booting and quick immediate access stuff, and the magnetic drive for higher capacity data storage. The SSDs are much faster than mag drives but not large capacity. Some friends of mine have tried this and they reckon it works for them. 60% is a pretty good improvement I would say? Anyone with more knowledge care to comment further?

New Apple MacBookAir already uses flash drive. Only to save space they have not used disk enclosure. They are available in 64GB and 128GB configuration. As per Apple, their future products will be mainly based on Flash SDD.

Does anybody know how are these NAND flash chips packaged? What package type, how many dies in a package? What else (controller?) might be in a package? Intel is a formidable player and clearly committed to SSD drives. Many thanks in advance and Happy New Year to us all !!

It will be interesting to see if Apple makes such a change in the next year or so.

Intel is innovating? Had it been innovating, it would not have been pushed to go on a shopping spree for players in the mobile domain. They are losing the game just because they were low on innovation and thinking ahead.

Maybe Apple will replace the HDs with these SSDs as it will only add 10% more cost to the existing price of Macbooks.

"When paired with a high-capacity magnetic disk drive in a dual-drive system, the Intel SSD 310 can improve overall PC system performance by up to 60 percent, Intel claimed." Presumably, if the SSD were superior the performance would be much much more than 100 percent better.

That's too harsh on US, no? IBM? AMD? Micron? Apple?
