Transcend 2.5" Solid State Disk 32 GB
How can you not love cheap solid state storage? Sure its Fast as hell, sure its quiet as a mouse, and sure it prolongs battery life, but it has a good side too! These little devils are shock absorbent in the extreme. For those of you who absolutely must render 3D animations while off roading through the Sierra Nevada's at 45 miles per bone crunching hour your non-denominational deity neutral prayers have been answered! No more contrived airplane weave drive suspensions required, now you can toss all your equipment around with abandon.
This drop-in replacement for your laptop's hard drive represents the future of laptops. It's low-power, runs cool and quiet, and is much more shock-resistant than a traditional hard drive. I just can't decide whether to buy one of these and add it to my existing laptop or wait a few months for the price to decline by 50% and buy it with an entirely new laptop. I predict this is going to be THE laptop feature of 2008.
