Solid State disks at Dell

Lionel points out that Dell now offers solid state drives on its D420 offering.
Several people have asked about when we will offer solid state—or flash-based—hard drives. User reg submitted it on IdeaStorm, and there are several related ideas about these drives as well. Today, we're selling them on our ultra-mobile notebook the Latitude D420 and the D620 ATG semi-rugged notebooks. We will also offer these drives across our entire next-generation notebook line.


I found the drive available separately as an offering for your D420 here:
32 GB Solid State Parallel ATA Hard Drive for Dell Latitude D420 Notebook - Customer Install

Its only 32GB right now. I wish their were some benchmarks we could get on these.

You can buy the disk direct here
(Hmm... even though it has the buy direct link, I can't seem to find it in the store!).
