According to this clip from “ComputerWorld”, solid-state disks or drives (SSD) will be comparable in price to today’s spinning hard drives, within 3-three years. Once the prices reach that threshold expect manufacturers to adapt to this technology by making SSD technology the standard in new PC’s…
To educate my readers, solid-state disks are stationary electronics (no mechanical action) that is the future replacement to the hard drives we have in our PC’s today. In actuality, SSD is not disks as we know them today. SSD’s uses solid state electronics and memory to store data (very much like our portable flash drives). The hard disk drives in our PC today consists of rapidly rotating platters with magnetic surfaces to store encoded data.
