why are no SSD (solid state disc) configurations available?

Asked by Sebastian Haselbeck on 2008-01-21

Offering SSDs for laptops at system76 would be an additional killer application. Not only would that decrease noise and power consumption of a system, it would also advance this new technology.

Thank you for your interest in System 76.

From a "demand" perspective, we've only had a few inquiries about SSD's. However, our R&D team does keep a running tally of customer
interests, so I'll make sure they get a copy of your query for their files.

Here is an interesting wikipedia article on this technology (particularly the advantages/disadvantages of ssd's).
We are keeping our eye on this technology.

Best,
Tom
