MojoKid writes “Though there has been some noise in recent years about hybrid storage, it really hasn’t made a significant impact on in the market. Seagate is taking another stab at the technology and they’ve just launched the Momentus XT 2.5-inch hard drive that mates 4GB of Flash storage with traditional spinning media in an attempt to bridge the gap between hard drives and SSDs. Seagate claims the Momentus XT can offer the same kind of enhanced user experience as an SSD, but with the capacity and cost of a traditional hard drive. That’s a pretty tall order but the numbers look promising, at least compared to current traditional notebook hard drives.”
