This IDC study summarizes IDC's own experience using hybrid hard disk drives (H-HDDs) and solid state drives (SSDs) to improve PC performance. It evaluates the potential benefit of each storage technology, documents real opinions of end users (IDC analysts), and suggests ways to increase adoption of these technologies.

"End users are hungry — hungry for information, services, and entertainment to be delivered to them via their computing devices. With the proliferation of conceal-and-carry computing devices, the wait time from hand to eyeball has been shortened dramatically through near-instant-on capability. Alas, this is not the case with today's traditional desktop or laptop PC — but hybrid HDDs and solid state drives can help considerably." — Dave Reinsel, group vice president, IDC
