Samsung 64GB 1.8in solid-state hard drive

The 64GB drive is faster than its predecessor too, with maximum read and write speeds of 64MBps and 45MBps, respectively - 4.3 and 6.4 times greater than a typical 80GB hard disk drive, Samsung claimed, and 1.2 and 1.5 times faster than its 32GB SSD.

The new solid-state drive isn't available yet - Samsung said the product won't go into mass-production until next quarter.
