As computer systems grow more powerful and their uses more varied, so, too, grows their demand for storage.

As computer systems grow more powerful and their uses more varied, so, too, grows their demand for storage—this holds as true for handheld computers as it does for servers and workstations.

SanDisk helps satisfy the storage needs of handheld and mobile computers with its gargantuan 1GB CompactFlash card.

At $800, the new SanDisk offering doesnt come cheap, particularly when compared with IBMs $300 1GB Microdrive. What the SanDisk CompactFlash card gives up in financial thrift, however, it helps make up in battery-life savings. With no moving parts, flash-based storage like that of the SanDisk card can keep mobile workers working longer between charges.
