Actually, IS a SSD, and it has the reliability of the Bush Administration during a Hurricane.

And, unfortunately, it's not the first; through research , I have found the newer (i.e. 3-years-old or less) laptop drives are as resistant to the environment as the SSD. Bumps, vibration, dust and heat don't seem to bother them.

We had one in a mechanical room in the "penthouse" of a building when the building gwas hit by lightning...nothing in the top of the building survived that...

Never underestimate the Power of Denial.
