From The Inquirer:

PSSD IS THE NEW SANDISK brand for the company's just-launched Parallel ATA Solid State Drive range. These are the new SSDs aimed at the ultra-low cost PC’s of the ilk that are all around us of late, with products arriving from ASUS, DELL, ACER and we expect many many others too.

The new line of flash memory-based solid-state drives is designed for the emerging new category of portable consumer electronics – known as ULCPCs, netbooks or crappy lappies, depending on how you look at the market. Sandisk trademarked PSSDs (Parallel ATA Solid State drive) are available in 4, 8 and 16 Gigabyte modules, with a streaming read speed of 39 megabytes per second (MB/s) and streaming write performance of 17MB/s. Operating Systems supported at this time are both Linux and Microsoft Windows XP.
