DailyTech - When it comes to computer technology, hard drives have advanced the slowest over the years are far as speed is concerned. We've seen dramatic increases in processing speed and graphics power, but HDDs have long been the bottleneck in modern systems. Many are looking to solid state disks (SSDs) to give a boost in speed. In addition, SSDs have the advantage of lighter weight, more efficient packaging, silent operation, durability and power efficiency. The major drawback, however, is pricing. Current 1.8" SSDs are roughly five times as expensive as their 1.8" HDD counterparts. Analysts expect the difference to only drop to three times as expensive by 2010.
