LG has a new notebook that features a hybrid hard drive. It's the LG R400:
According to reports, the LG R400 will be for sale in a week or two and uses flash based non volatile cache to boot machines faster and also to speed up data processing by a factor of three. It also promises big HDD power savings.
The R400 appears to have a 14.1-inch widescreen display, has an integrated 1.3 megapixel webcam, and BlueCore 4, a variant of Bluetooth 2.0. It also has two antennae for wireless.
The laptop already appeared on the site of a Canadian store for $1,199 (approx. 1,017 U.S. dollars)

I'm not sure, according to news reports from a few weeks ago the laptop should have a hybrid one but on LG's product page I can't really find anything about this feature. Maybe it's an optional feature?
