THE RACE to market for machines which use hybrid hard drives is well under way as details have emerged of an LG R400 notebook which uses the technology.

According to reports, the LG R400 will be for sale in a week or two and uses flash based non volatile cache to boot machines faster and also to speed up data processing by a factor of three. It also promises big HDD power savings.

The R400 appears to have a 14.1-inch widescreen display, has an integrated 1.3 megapixel webcam, and BlueCore 4, a variant of Bluetooth 2.0. It also has two antennae for wireless.

There's a picture of the R400 here, priced at $1,199 - presumably Canadian dollars. µ
