Boise, ID, and Glasgow, UK, 6 January, 2012 - Crucial, a leading global brand of memory and storage upgrades, today introduced a 7mm version of the award-winning Crucial m4 SSD to meet the need for thinner storage devices. With the same performance delivered by the standard 9.5mm Crucial m4 SSD, the new ultra-slim 7mm version supports the latest thin and light form factor laptop models, such as the Lenovo® ThinkPad® T420G, Acer® Aspire® 6920G, and new Intel®-inspired UltrabookTM devices. The 7mm Crucial m4 SSD is available in 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB capacities. The 512GB capacity offering is one of the highest-capacity storage drives - magnetic or solid state - available in the market today for laptops with a 7mm tall drive bay.
The new, thinner version of the Crucial m4 SSD improves boot-up and application load times to enhance computing efficiency. Ideal for client computing, 7mm Crucial m4 SSDs also provide benefits for notebooks, desktops, workstations, and industrial applications, such as low power consumption, lightweight construction, and resistance to shock and vibration. The 7mm Crucial m4 SSD leverages the industry-leading memory, design, and manufacturing capability of Micron Technology, and is built to the exacting standards demanded by leading OEM computer manufacturers worldwide.
"The demand for thinner, lighter, and lower-cost laptops continues to grow, and many users are demanding reliable storage solutions that offer high performance in these increasingly smaller form factors," said Robert Wheadon, worldwide senior product manager, Crucial. "The 7mm Crucial m4 SSD provides exceptional performance in a super-thin form factor, is extensively tested in-house, and is the newest offering in our award-winning SSD portfolio."
The new 7mm Crucial m4 SSD includes a three-year limited warranty, and is currently offered on www.crucial.com/uk at £75.99 for 64GB; £133.99 for 128GB; £262.99 for 256GB; and £508.99 for the 512GB solution.
