WD 320GB is the OS drive and add 510 120GB SSD.
39~40W, it’s around half-half.
320 160GB SSD is the OS drive add 320GB HDD, it’s still at 39W.
For power consumption, no matter if there is SSD, it only increase 1~2W.
Comparing to platform with both HDD and SSD, HDD power consumption is little bit higher than SSD but not big gap.
NoteBook platform use TOSHIBA 2nd generation Core i7.
The chipset is Intel HM65.
You can figure out this TOSHIBA NB quality just need to use for a while.
Speaker quality is very good in my experience.
The Keyboard touch feeling and plastic copy hair line surface texture is very good as well.
These 3 designs compare to my “Dual A” new NB are even better.

The performance at NoteBook is still good. Some benchmark is same as PC, but the gap is not big.
Personally, I think SSD has more advantage in NB than PC, because 2.5” HDD is slower than 3.5” HDD, also 2.5” HDD is more expensive.
Even though SSD has no advantage at capacity, the difference with 2.5” HDD is smaller.
It doesn’t mean SSD is not fit PC. Just consider about C/P value, it’s lower than NoteBook platform.
Small capacity SSD use for Z68 SRT hybrid acceleration technology with 2~3TB HDD is more suitable for PC platform.
If in the future, the TRIM technology can use under RAID mode, the SSD advantage at PC platform will be more clear.
Intel SSD is easy to find in the market. This time, these 2 series SSD price is higher than the other brands.
Due to Intel brand awareness and good after service, the SSD acceptance is still high.
I hope 320/510 price can be lower in the future. It can enhance the completion force and market share.
Currently, many read/write performance around 200 MB/s 128GB SSD price is 200USD.
In same price position, SSD capacity increase to 128GB from 64GB in the past. It’s really helpful for execution.
Of course, the unit price of SSD is still much higher than HDD. We do can look forward the lower unit price in the future.
For most users, before buying 3C products, you need to study some basic information to avoid get unsatisfied products.
Such as outlook, spec, after service, performance and executive features are all important.
This review includes 2 Intel new series SSD performance data for readers who has SSD demand.
