The Forthcoming Switch to 5 mm HDD Models

Nowadays HDD segment is represented by various products from various companies. However, with the development and release of ultrabooks, manufacturers directed their production to the hybrid-type drives. This resulted in the predominance of hybrid solutions in the market.

This will result in the rise of end price.
