HP today announced the availability of SSD in their professional and mobile workstation series notebooks. The HP Compaq 2710p, HP Compaq 2510p, HP Compaq 6910p and HP Compaq 8000 series notebooks will all have the option of configuring a 64GB SSD.
The HP 2510p will be offered with a 64GB SSD
The advantages of SSD over traditional mechanical hard drives are the following:
It's interesting to note that HP will not offer a 32GB SSD like many other manufacturers have started to do. HP feels there's simply not enough space left for storage on a 32GB drive after the Windows VistaOS and other basic software has been installed. Therefore they jumped straight to offering the more capacious, and expensive, 64GB SSD.
Pricing has not been announced by HP at this time, but availability for configuration should be soon. We would expect the upgrade cost to a 64GB SSD drive to be in excess of $500.
