64GB solid-state HDDs on the new Area-51sSep 11th, 2007 | By Editor | Category: Alienware
To further maximize the mobile freedom of its notebook customers, Alienware® – the leading manufacturer of high-performance desktop, notebook and professional systems – is now featuring 64GB solid state drives (SSD) on the Area-51® m9750 notebook. The Area-51 m9750 is the industry’s first system to offer a dual 64GB SSD RAID 0 configuration and a dual drive configuration combining a 64GB SSD and a 200GB 7,200 RPM hard drive. Users can also opt for a single 64GB SSD configuration.
“After previously being first to market with a dual 32GB RAID 0 SSD configuration, Alienware has achieved another milestone in mobile storage by being the first to deliver a dual 64GB SSD RAID 0 configuration and the first to combine a single 64GB SSD with a second larger capacity hard drive,” said Bryan de Zayas, Associate Director of Product Marketing at Alienware. “This gives Alienware notebook users unprecedented data access and storage flexibility and allows them to take advantage of rapid performance, rugged reliability and maximum power efficiency all at once.”
The SSD increases performance by speeding up boot and load times over standard hard drives. And, with no moving parts, the durable 64GB SSD can withstand rough transit conditions, perfect for on-the-go users who rely heavily on stored data. In addition, the SSD consumes less power to optimize a notebook’s battery life.
