Apple notebooks could use hybrid HDDs

It is rumored that Apple will be unveiling notebook computers sometime later this year that use flash memory as the storage medium of choice, and it remains to be seen whether this will be part of a hybrid hard drive that combines both a standard hard drive an NAND flash memory. Whatever the case is, end users will be the ones who benefit as flash memory results in a lesser load and boot up times in addition to conserving more power. Apple has not yet released any official comment on this development, so take this news with a grain of salt. It will be a matter of time before traditional hard drives go the way of the dodos, but that is still a long way off since flash memory is much more expensive in high capacities.
