Blade X-gale SSD are used in the new Apple MacBook Air.
Toshiba unveiled today the Blade X-gale series SSD storage. These SSD modules are used in the new MacBook Air, and are the reason why the MacBook Air is performing so well. Toshiba will now offer these modules, which enable MacBook Air customers to upgrade their MacBook Air in the future. The release of the Blade X-gale SSD module could also imply that other computer makers will adopt them and release new netbooks and mini laptops.
With the Blade X-gale you get 220MB/s read and 180MB/s write speeds. The Blade X-gale drives cover 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities and are available now. The 64GB and 128GB modules are only 2.2mm thick. The 256GB Blade X-gale is 3.8mm thick. The small size is really what sets these SSD modules apart.
I suppose Toshiba will be first with a sexy new netbook or laptop with Blade X-gale inside.
