SSD is for notebook and desktop users

SanDisk has unveiled a new SSD today called the Ultra that is now shipping to retailers.

The Ultra SSD is sized to work in a notebook or a desktop computer and is designed for a drop-in upgrade to a machine for users. The SSD reads up to 280MB/s sequentially and up to 270MB/s sequential writes are supported. 
The drive has a mean time between failure rating of up to a million hours.

"Replacing a computer's hard disk drive with the SanDisk Ultra SSD is more cost effective than buying a new PC," said Kent Perry, director, product marketing, SanDisk. "Our new SSD delivers greater speed and reliability than a hard disk drive at an affordable price."

The SSD is offered in three capacities with a 60GB for $129.99, 120GB for $219.99, and a 240GB for $449.99. All three capacities are available right now in the U.S. and can be purchased from Newegg and other retailers.

...it is saying much when it's the mainstream alternative. computing performance definitely needs to increase but the bottleneck mechanical HDDs have on current systems can be massive. if you're in need of better computational speeds, you'd likely also be in need of a storage format that offers better I/O, unless you're just playing video games.
