It's been anticipated for some time now, solid-state storage is the new trend for everything that is mobile and requires low power consumption. Dell does not want to fall behind, and is now offering an optional 1.8-inch 32GB solid state drive (SSD) from SanDisk on the Latitude D420 ultra-mobile and D620 ATG semi-rugged notebook.

"A solid state drive is an excellent storage technology for our mobile users," said Kevin Kettler, chief technology officer at Dell. "We are committed to leading the industry in delivering these new drives and will offer them across Dell's next generation of Latitude products."
We can only expect solid state drives to become more popular as availability grows and prices drop, but for now these drives will only be available in the Americas and set you back $549. You can read the complete press release here.
