Seagate recently announced and released their third generation of
laptop Solid State Hybrid Drives. Originally thier hybrids carried the
Momentus (laptop HDD) name forward, tacking on 'XT' to denote the
on-board caching ability. The Momentus XT was intriduced in a 500GB
(1st gen) and 750GB (2nd gen) model. The new line gets a new and
simple title - Laptop SSHD.

Quote: "Seagate appears to be leading the way in the mobile Hybrid
drive market. Each and every generation has pushed the envelope
further and come closer to native SSD speeds. The catch is those
speeds are only attained for data that is in the cache, and the meager
8GB of flash seems to be holding these devices back when in the hands
of more demanding power users with heavier workloads."
