Samsung R55 Lappy Launched with Hybrid Hard Drive
 
 
Samsung has launched their new R55 notebook computer that sports their new hybrid HDD technology to speed data access. With an MSRP of a bit over $1900 it is certainly not cheap. Other features include a 15.4” WXGA LCD, 80GB Hybrid HDD at 5400 RPM with 256Mb OneNAND Flash, NVIDIA GeForce 7400 graphics, Vista Premium and a super multi DL optical drive.

Samsung claims that the hybrid HDD can increase data read performance by as much as 26%, 71% on data write speed and 32% lower power consumption when used with small data chucks of up to 10MB.I guess one could assume by the fact that Samsung stipulates performance increases are with small files that the performance gains on larger files is not as significant. The hybrid drive technology also can increase drive life expectance as well, which is great for protecting critical data like your downloaded episodes of Lost from before the show really sucked.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
