samsung q40 ssd notebook

Samsung has made it’s ultramobile laptop, the Samsung Q40, even more portable by adding the option of replacing the normal HDD with a SDD, either a 16GB or 32GB NAND Flash SSD. The main advantages of the new SSD drives will be faster access times, meaning that booting will be quicker (20-45%), as well as read/write operations. It also will improve battery life and best of all: silent operation. And not to forget that SSDs are less likely to fail than traditional HDDs.
The Q40 offers ultramobile computing with a 12.1display and is powered by a Intel Core Solo ULV processor. It doesn’t offer any built-in drivers for obvious reasons, instead coming with an external 12.7mm DVD super multi Dual Layer drive.

Sadly, the SSD version isn’t going to come cheap.
