Digit news - Samsung offers 32GB SSD drive

At CeBIT Samsung demonstrated a 32GB solid state disk, that booted an XP machine is about half the time compared to that of a disk based workstation. They've also packaged the memory into a 1.8" form factor so making it a direct swap for conventional drives.

Though there will be speed/weight and possible power improvements, solid state disks are very expensive compared to the conventional magnetic platter type. If demand is high enough the price could drop.

CeBit also saw the launch of a 200GB conventional notebook disk.
