Dubbed the Blade X-gale, these storage solutions are one of the key reasons why the new MacBook Air is so slim and yet can offer a raft of space for music, movies and files. Available on 64GB, 128GB and 256GB, Tosh reckons they’ll help make gadgets even slimmer.

A statement from the Japanese tech giant said, “Ideally suited for integration into space-sensitive products, including tablet PCs, laptops, mini-mobile and netbook PCs, Toshiba's latest SSD offering helps these devices achieve a super slim profile.”

So, now Apple’s led the way with an even thinner version of its pared down laptop, who’ll be next to use the Blade X-gale? Expect to see a welter of new devices rocking these SSDs over the coming year.
