Hitachi-LG Viaco Mini PC With Hybrid Blu-ray SSD Drive

Over at CEATEC Hitachi-LG has introduced the Viaco Mini PC which sports some interesting technology, now in its 2nd generation – a Hybrid Drive which combines an optical disk drive with an SSD (and a 6Gbps SATA connector) which is the same size as a standard laptop drive – in this case the Viaco Mini PC was sporting a Blu-ray drive combined with a 32GB SSD. The advantages here is that you don’t need space for an extra SSD or HDD or you have extra room for more storage. Other specs for this Viaco Mini PC include an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB DDR2 RAM, a 3.5″ SATA 5400RPM HDD and Windows 7 Home Premium.

The Hybrid Drive should be available from May 2011 and companies Averatec, Shuttle and Moneual are all currently showcasing mini PCs with this technology at CEATEC.
