"The 3.5-inch LS model offers 300 GB and 1250 GB versions" :) That is quite a lot of space for a SSD. Gotta love typos.... or is it

Give it a few years and SSDs are all we'll use anymore. The traditional magnetic platter drives will be relagated to large scale storage for backup, media servers and SANs.

sounds familiar... something about multi-processors/multi-core/multi-threaded applications taking over... back in 2003... and yet... here we are in 2009 and while dual core processors are all the rage, decent multi-threaded applications are still few and far between... we can't even get x64 fully adopted... make no mistake, magnetic spinning discs will be with us for even longer than expected...

So, when can we expect another Toms speed record-breaking array? ;)

The press release says the following:

2. User capacities: LS (3.5-inch) = 300GB and 150GB; LB (2.5-inch) = 150 GB

So ya it is a typo its supposed to be 300GB and 150GB

seems like someone put 3 flash based boards in a raid config!
Probably with a limitation to read from 2, and write to 1 board at a time.
That'd explain their high speeds.

If this is so, we could see 100GB SSD's for about $200; which is an awesome price!
But their battery life would also be nearly trippled compared to another SSD!
