Micron has announced that it has expanded its SSD lineup to include mSATA models geared for ultrathin notebooks. The new drives are based on the company's existing RealSSD C400 drives, but with a Mini SATA connector and stripped away housing for notebooks that require a 3cm x 5cm footprint.
Micron today made a concerted effort to bolster its RealSSD solid-state drives with extremely high-speed but potentially low-priced notebook models. The C200 line is one of Micron's first aimed at home notebook owners and uses the newest generation of multi-level cell (MLC) flash storage to supply speed without sacrificing capacity: every drive can read data as quickly as 250MB per second and write it at 100MB per second, while the conventionally notebook-sized 2.5-inch disk can hold as much as 256GB of data. A 1.8-inch drive for ultraportables holds up to 128GB.
