  • How hybrid hard drives work and why they matter

    An SSD can read and write data many times faster than the best mechanical hard drive. On the downside, flash memory is many times more expensive than the innards of a typical hard drive, so manufacturers have limited their SSD capacities to hit reasonable price points: A 128GB SSD costs about $130, and for that same price tag, you can buy a 3.5-inch desktop hard drive that delivers 2TB of storage, or a 2.5-inch laptop drive that provides 1TB of storage.

  • The best tools for PC maintenance

    Most people, even IT pros who spend their lives maintaining corporate computing infrastructure, are so busy with life, families, work and the rest that they tend to leave periodic home PC maintenance tasks at the bottom of a long list of things that never get done.

  • Solid state drives fail as much as traditional disks

  • Macbook Air could foretell death of hard drives

  • Hitachi vs Seagate vs Western Digital: Hard drive makers talk up new storage tech

    In a reflection of the hard-fought battle among hard drive makers to get ahead of rivals, Hitachi, Seagate and Western Digital this week talked up storage innovations, including a Hitachi drive that combines an optical platter with Micron's densest NAND flash memory and advanced hard drives from Western Digital and Seagate that hold up to 3TB of data.

  • A simple guide to RAID

    What is RAID, why do you need it, and what are all those mode numbers that are constantly bandied about? RAID stands for "redundant array of independent disks," and you may or may not need it depending on your data-storage requirements.

  • In Depth: SATA 6 Gbits/sec

    Those of us in the business of keeping an eye on new technologies wonder why the buzz about SATA 6Gbit/sec. (a.k.a. Serial ATA Revision 3) hasn't been louder than it is.

  • Office in a bag: Basic 'musts' for the digital nomad

    Like humanity's original nomads, today's denizens of the open road must carry everything they need to make up a digital office into your shoulder bag or backpack.

  • Intel's new Core i7 and Core i5 processors explained

    Intel's two new Core i7 CPUs (860 and 870) are mid-range counterparts to its top-of-the-line Core i7 900-series chips, and initial tests (using Intel's new DP55KG motherboard) indicate their performance follows suit. Our early tests also show the new entry-level Core i5 750 is the one to watch when it comes to best bang for your buck.
