Netbooks are neat little computers and are making internet tablets obsolete. The only problem with these little laptops is that, well, they’re little and that doesn’t allow for much in terms of power, memory, and hard drive space. Well, Toshiba has answered the call for the latter and will be making 256GB solid state drives. Pretty soon, spinning hard drives will likely be phased out in favor of more reliable, not to mention faster, SSDs. The Toshiba SSD is expected to have a read and write speed of 120MBps and 70MBps, respectively, and will use an SATA 3.0-Gbps interface. Small, lightweight, and power-packed, these drives are perfect for increasingly shrinking computers such as the Dell Mini 9 and Asus Eee PC.
