The mainstream market demand is expected shift to different products, such as hybrid drives. Users who need maximum performance and cares about battery life, have been choosing notebooks with SSDs for years now, whereas those who required capacity, performance and moderate price do not really care about actual performance. With the introduction of third-generation solid-state hybrid drives later this year, Seagate will position them for performance and capacity demanding end-users. The company will also continue to offer 5400rpm HDDs for value notebooks."
