I let most component news hit the floor but I can't seem to get enough of new SSD news because of how much I want my laptop to stop ticking and clicking and whirring. Crucial's new M4 line of 2.5-inch SSDs just came out. Cult of Mac says:
Crucial has just launched its new M4 lineup of 2.5-inch solid-state drives, which are the successors to the RealSSD C300 range, and boast faster read and write speeds. The M4 uses 25nm technology NAND flash created by its parent company Micron, and is available in 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB models.
Crucial claim the new M4 SSDs reach read speeds of up to 415MBps – a 17% increase over its predecessor – while write speeds are up 20% with speeds of up to 260MBps.
As with all SSDs, however, this technology doesn't come cheap. The 64GB M4 will cost you $US130, which rises to $US250 for the 128GB, $US500 for the 256GB and $US1000 for the 512GB. All can be purchased directly from Crucial and include a three-year warranty.
