HP is adding a solid state HD option to its new line.

InfoWorld announced that Hewlett-Packard plans on adding a Solid State Drive (SSD) option to its products announced earlier this month and is committed to offering the option in future products.

The notebooks series with this option will be the HP Compaq 2710p, 2510p, 6910p, and 8000 series.The option will be available next month.  Initially only a 64 GB option will be offered, at a cost increase of around $1,000.

The higher cost and lower capacity may turn some users away, but HP is confident the benefits of SSD technology will outweigh the negatives, for some professional users.

The flash memory SSD drives will increase battery life and make the notebooks lighter -- both desirable effects for making the notebooks more portable.

HP is not the first notebook manufacturer to jump on the SSD train.   Last week DailyTech reported that Dell and Alienware laptops will be offering a SSD option as well.

The market future for SSD certainly looks bright, though costs still remain relatively high.
