Mac Compatible Hybrid SSD Hard Drives

Combining high-capacity AND Solid-State storage - a new generation of HYBRID SSD drives has reached the market. Here, the Seagate Momentus XT 7200RPM SATA 3Gb/s 32 MB Cache 2.5 Inch SSD - offers the best of both worlds.

FYI: It's critical to make sure Seagate's Hybrid has the latest firmware applied. A bootable ISO disc updater is available at Seagate's site for Mac OSX users.

These laptop size SATA III Hybrid drives offer from 250GB up to 500GB capacity 7200 RPM spinning platters - plus SSD flash memory built into the drive. Onboard firmware manages and stores your most frequently used data on the SSD portion for higher performance. And because this data optimization and caching is handled on the drive itself -- these Hybrid SSD drives are cross-platform compatible and work well on Windows or Mac OSX without requiring any special drivers or software. With prices ranging from $100-150 you can get extra capacity you may need, while still enjoying _some_ of the performance benefits of Solid-State drives on your Mac.
