Consuming just 80 mW of power when idle, and 5.8 W when fully active, the Samsung XP941 delivers longer battery life without sacrificing performance.
For desktops and laptops
The new M.2 SSD format (previously known as NGFF - New Generation Form Factor) is compatible with the latest generation netbooks and notebooks containing a PCIe M.2 socket, such as the new Sony Vaio Pro.
