Overshadowed by all the hype generated around the “MacBook Air” and iTunes Rentals, it seems people are missing one big announcement that comes with the MacBook Air. That announcement is the final inclusion of a Solid State hard drive in an Apple product. While other manufacturers have this, it has been speculated for a long time that this was going to happen with Apple, starting with a Patent they filed last year.
In Leo Laporte’s show last Saturday, I mentioned in IRC I thought Apple was going to announce a solid-state drive at this keynote. He quickly dismissed it (while unwilling to confirm any rumor, a wise decision). I’m happy to say, I was right! 🙂
