Samsung is planning to retrofit the Q1 and Q30 with a 32GB Solid State Disk (SSD). Owners of these two fine new devices can expect faster boot up time – in fact 25% to 50% quicker than existing models. The company touts read output of 53 MB/s and write speed of 28MB/s. Another benefit of using SSD is a big reduction in heat and reduces the risk of the HDD breaking down.
I have the Samsung Q1 for some time now, and yet still trying to get a review out – it’s coming very soon I promise. But even a fancy SSD may not save the Q1 especially when the price is now a premium $2,644!
