We hate moving parts here at Aleutia and we're always working to bring the cost of our rugged PCs. That's because we want to bridge the market gap between overpriced, niche industrial PCs and developing world budgets. That's because both groups value the same things: energy efficiency, no moving parts (less things to go wrong), and the general ability to last for years in the field.
SSDs have traditionally been very expensive and the market has been either overpriced laptops (MacBook Air) or well-off consumers upgrading their overpriced laptops.
We're now partnered with KingSpec, a large SSD manufacturer and will be offering their high speed 32GB and 64GB drives in our best-selling H1, as well our H2, T1, and P1 PCs.
With Read Speed of 175MB/sec and Write Speed of 100MB/sec, these offer far better performance than even desktop hard drives (at 60MB/sec typically) and much quicker access times (no moving platters to start up like in hard drives). And they only use 2W at peak.
