The Biggest Solid-State Drive

Name: [[xref:|Toshiba Portege R600-ST4203|Toshiba Portege R600-ST4203]]

Price: $3500

Availability: Now

Extreme spec: 512GB solid-state drive

Reasons to love it: Since [[xref:|solid-state drives|Solid-State Drives Go Mainstream]] don't have any moving parts, they're faster and more durable than conventional hard disks. With an SSD, you'll be able to save videos and music faster than a speeding bullet. You'll also like the Portege's 12.1-inch screen, 3GB DDR2 RAM, Intel 4500MHD mobile graphics, ExpressCard slot, and built-in Webcam--all in a sleek package that weighs just under 3 pounds.

A drive like this doesn't come cheap: $3500 is a high price to pay for a laptop with fancy file storage. Even so, the SSD you get here is probably a better bargain than OCZ's upcoming [[xref:|3.5-inch 1TB SSD|1TB SSD Drive Coming Soon, for a Price]]--that drive alone will retail for $2200.
