The Toshiba Dynabook SS RX1, one of the first notebooks announced to feature a solid-state disk larger then 100GB has been delayed
, following an announcement on Toshiba's website.
Considering that it was only four months
ago when Toshiba announced production of the 128GB SSD units and less than a month from their announcement for a newer type
of SSD to combat high costs, it's not a huge surprise that this Dynabook is facing delays. Whether or not the delay is actually due to the SSD itself is only speculation, but it seems likely.
SSDs are facing serious growing pains, not the least of which is their high cost per gigabyte. Toshiba and all other SSD manufacturers are hoping to cure this with newer technology, but it remains to be seen if there is even a strong enough demand to keep SSD sales going at the pace they originally intended.
