http://live.pirillo.com/ – Swat sent me a video email, wondering what exactly a solid state hard drive is… and is it better than a regular hard drive.

A solid state drive is one that has no moving parts. This makes it faster, lighter and thinner. These types of drives are ideal for laptop (portable) use. As of right now, these solid state drives are only available in high end models of laptops. Eventually, I think this will be the standard.

Many people believe that the wave of the future is going to involve having a solid state memory that your Operating System runs from. This will greatly increase the speed of your startup, and probably increase overall performance. I’m tired of waiting! The future of computing is exciting, and I wish it were here now!
