    Default Seagate launches Momentus 5400 - their first hybrid drive

    Seagate has finally announced their first hybrid drive, the Momentus 5400 PSD. The 2.5" drive operates at 5400 RPM, and will ship in 80, 120, and 160GB capacities. Using a technology called ReadyDrive, the drive predicts the commonly used data, and then transfers it to the drive's inbuilt flash memory - resulting in improved boot times and overall lower access times.
