SanDiskSanDisk uSSD 5000 solid state drive : Joining global efforts to bring affordable personal computers to millions of people in developing nations, SanDisk announced the SanDisk uSSD 5000 solid state drive, which can be used as an economical substitute for hard disk drives in sub-$250 PCs. Among the first computers using uSSD solid state drives will be the Intel-powered classmate PC, intended for educational markets in emerging nations. The SanDisk uSSD 5000 solid state drive is the first SSD product from SanDisk to be offered with SanDisk’s patented multi-level cell (MLC) technology. MLC technology doubles data- storage capacities in the same physical space as single-level cell (SLC) technology, resulting in significant cost savings.
