Nov. 5, 2010 - PRLog -- We are not strange about the HDD media players anymore. In the following we will talk about an issue of the hard disk. According to the published article of US computer world, the super thin MacBook Air without traditional hard disk launched by apple may predict the ending of the traditional hard disk. Steve Jobs said that the notebook will represent the future of the notebook. Many observers in the field agree with the opinion.

NAND flash memory is used in mp3 player in the early time. With the further decrease of the price, the solid state disk will encroach on the market share of the traditional hard disk. The traditional hard disk will be used for the enterprise data center serivice and saving system. The hard disk hasn't affected the hi-end data center storage product. The analyst pointed out that the NAND flash memory will finally enter into the consumer electronics board to solve the bottleneck problem between the computer and large capacity storage device.

The MacBook Air with solid state disk presents the new selling point. It will encroach on the selling of all MacBook notebooks. The thickness of New MacBook Air is minimized to 0.11 inch from the 0.68 inch. It only weighs 2.9 pound. Its capacity is between 64GB and 256GB. The weight of MacBook with 250GB traditional disk is 4.7 pound.

In this week, the price of Air is declined to 999 dollars. The CTO of the market research company In-Start Jim McGregor said, "Flash memory should follow the cost-effectiveness." Jim McGregor pointed out that the price of solid state disk is higher compared with the traditional consumer hard disk. The 64GB solid state disk is sold at about 100 dollars. For most of the users, the 64GB capacity is enough. With the appearing of vertical recording technology, the density and capacity of the hard disk are increased rapidly in the passed few years.

The consumers start to share more data through the network and save the data through the cloud computing. As the data is not saved through the portable device, it doesn't require large capacity hard disk notebook.

McGregor said, "Though we always hear that the content will on the exponential increase, most of the contents are not saved on the hard disk. Thus, the solid state hard disk means a lot to the portable PC. The new Apple TV digital product turns to the streaming technology from the traditional hard disk. Other products also develop on the trend. The user needn't save the information. This is the great change caused by cloud computing in the passed few years."

It's estimated that the price of NAND will on the further decrease in the short term. The objective-analystis Jim Handy pointed out that the price of NAND flash memory will decrease as it's oversupplied. Handy said in the early year, Toshiba will begin to set up the new NAND flash memory chip manufacturer plant. It's joint factory of Toshiba and SanDisk. The selling price of NAND flash memory will decrease by 40% each year. At present, the selling price of 1GB solid state hard disk is 1.20 dollars.
