HDD industry will try to create products with 5mm thick
When ultrabooks appeared on the market, available for fast and expensive solid state drives (SSD) to handle the mass storage, which triggered the price of equipment up to $ 1000 in most cases. So the first generation did not sell well, and the second was chosen hybrid Hard Drives with a small portion of SSD.
And is that PCs are so thin that it is not a record for conventional 2.5-inch notebooks, and therefore, SSDs are the preference. But you have to lower the price of laptops or yes, hard drive manufacturers have chosen to invest in the Development of technologies to manufacture products with a thickness of 5mm, suitable to provide meals in a small space, replacing of the SSD.
There remains the question about whether they will have such a low price as its like 2.5 inches, however, the industry is just a Design stage, lacking enough to realize the arrival of the devices. However, there is enough trouble and research priority would be the maximum, because they must be sold fast ultrabooks.
