Lenovo X300 ultraportable uses Samsung SATA II Solid State Drive

Lenovo's much-vaunted ThinkPad X300 is being hailed in some circles as the ultraportable to oust the MacBook Air, and a major chunk of its charm is the use of a Solid State Drive (SSD) rather than a traditional drive that can be subject to knocks and jolts.  Samsung provided the SATA II SSD used, with the specific model capable of 100 MB/s read rates and 80 MB/s write rates, despite using 30-percent less power than a typical platter-based drive.
