Sandisk was announcing a whole slew of new products for 2007 with a heavy bias towards portable media players. Although, being Sandisk, they also had some innovative memory products. Notably their work on solid state drives (SSDs) for notebook computers. Earlier this week Sandisk announce a 32GB SSD 1.8 drive meant to replace standard hard drives. The UATA 5000 is currently available to original equipment manufacturers and should be popping up in notebooks soon. An impressive video of sub-40 second Vista boot up times followed. Even more impressive was the time-lapsed video of a SSD Vista boot up followed by a drop-shock test and subsequent re-install of the SSD and re-boot of Vista.
