According to the published article of US computer world, the super thin MacBook Air without traditional hard disk launched by apple may predict
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.

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."
