Solid state drives, more popularly referred to simply as SSD, are fast and snappy. SSDs are also slimmer too, making them the ideal choice for today’s ultrabooks.
But the one thing that traditional hard drives (HDD) are still better at is offering more storage per buck.
So what’s one to do if one wants to trick out an ultraportable with more onboard storage?
Well, back then, you had no choice but to settle with largest capacity SSD available, which wasn’t much. But now, you do have a choice – either go with an SSD… or go with the WD Scorpio Blue 7mm HDD.
It’s thin enough to fit in most SSD-based lappies and, with up to 500GB of storage to offer, is the perfect solution for those who can’t live with just 256GB of measly SSD storage on their mobile PC.
How much storage? Think normal portable hard drives.
Plus, these are priced quite nicely too!
SRP of the 500GB WD Scorpio Blue 7mm HDD is just Php4,250 while the 320GB version is going for Php3,300. Not bad for ultraportable storage, no?
These should be out already but, if not, just treat this as a heads up that they’re coming.
