Micron: 'Crucial' For Ultrathin Laptops

Boise, Idaho-based Micron in April unveiled a new line of its mSATA SSD line for what it calls ultrathin laptops, including the new Ultrabook PCs. The C400 mSATA drive is targeted for use either as the primary drive in ultrathin portable PCs or as a cache drive in dual-drive systems.

The drives, which measure a mere 3 cm by 5 cm, range in capacities from 32 GB to 256 GB and have a SATA 6 Gb-per-second interface. It is based on MLC NAND flash memory technology.

A version specifically for the consumer channel carries Micron's "Crucial" brand name.
