MSI U115 Hybrid

MSI touts the U115 Hybrid as “the first notebook computer in the world that is capable of operating both SSD and HDD hard drives simultaneously.” The company’s Exclusive Hybrid Storage Technology or “ECO” mode makes use of the SSD for the system and in Windows you have the option of selecting the HDD for file storage. While in ECO mode the HDD is disconnected and all file I/O operations will be done with the SSD system. MSI doesn’t exactly state how long the battery will last on the U115 Hybrid but mentions “super long” a few times. The 10.2″ wide TFT LCD sports a LED backlight that should help in keeping the battery humming a while longer.
