Computer makers are always looking to reduce the number of components inside notebooks and other computers. The fewer components there are inside, the smaller the machines can be made and the longer the battery will last. Hitachi-LG Data Storage has unveiled a new device called the HyDrive that eliminates the SSD from inside a notebook.

The new product is an optical drive that has SSD storage inside. The first generation HyDrive will be offered with 32GB or 64GB of SSD storage. In addition to having the SSD storage, the HyDrive can also burn CDs and DVDs.

The HyDrive is to be used as primary storage inside notebooks and AIO machines. The HyDrive will be used by Asus inside its Eee Top nettop machines and the global debut of the HyDrive will be inside the Asus N61DA notebook. The HyDrive will also show up in the Moneaul Family PC this August.
