16 Gb SanDisk Netbook SDHC: More Storage for Your Netbook

SanDisk today announced the SanDisk Netbook SDHC removable flash memory card, offering consumers an easy way to significantly increase their netbooks' storage capacity. Consumers simply insert the SanDisk Netbook SDHC card into a netbook’s card slot to add capacity instantly. This news expands upon the previously announced next-generation SanDisk pSSD product family, which serve as drop-in replacements for hard disk drives (HDDs) in netbooks.

The SanDisk Netbook SDHC card gives consumers the ability to increase the netbook’s capacity by 8 or 16 gigabytes, effectively doubling the storage space offered in most solid-state drive () powered netbook models. The card resides within the netbook, which decreases the risk of it being damaged while the netbook is moved.

Netbooks are small, low-cost computers that offer consumers a highly portable means of surfing the Internet, accessing email as well as enjoying their favorite music and videos on the go. Market researchers, IDC, project consumer purchases of netbooks to rise from 11.5 million sold in 2008 to 50 million in 20132. Despite their growing popularity, many models are capacity-constrained, causing users to run out of storage space quickly, with few options for increasing memory.

The 8GB card carries an MSRP of $39.99 and the 16GB card carries an MSRP of $79.99. The card comes with a 5 year limited warranty.
