Last year's proliferation of itty bitty and skinny laptops also helped to drive the proliferation of SSDs, and if Sandisk's latest announcement is any indicator that popularity could really pay off this year. The company has announced a new line of 2.5-inch and 1.8-inch SSDs for laptops of various sizes. The three new models come in 60GB, 120GB, and 240GB flavors, priced at $149, $249, and $499 respectively. Great values, by the sounds, and with 200MB/sec read and 140MB/sec writes, great performance, too. We can't wait to do some evaluating of our own when these start appearing inside laptops sometime toward the middle of this year.
