Samsung SSDs In ThinkPads

SEOUL -- Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced semiconductor technology, announced that its 1.8-inch solid state drive (SSD) is available in the recently launched ThinkPad X301 ultra-portable notebook in 64 gigabyte (GB) and 128 GB densities.
The innovative ThinkPad X301 notebook is optimized for Samsungs new DDR3 main memory and the latest Intel® Core 2 Duo ultra-low-volt processor, that together deliver approximately 20 percent better performance in the X301 over its predecessor, the ThinkPad X300 notebook.

Samsung’s 64 GB SSD is also an option in five more of Lenovo’s latest notebook PCs, available in many countries, including the ThinkPad X200, T400 and T500 notebooks and ThinkPad W500 and W700 mobile workstations.

“We are seeing a strong continuation of the push by OEM’s to have more PCs offered with SSD storage, which makes a lot of sense for those who can see its extended value proposition over the life of the notebook,” said Jim Elliott, vice president, memory marketing, Samsung Semiconductor, Inc. “The fact that Lenovo now also offers SSDs as an option in its ThinkPad ultra-portable notebooks is indicative of the growing popularity of SSDs as a viable storage medium in PCs overall.”
