    We do a lot of cross country touring on our Motorcycle. Because of the vibration, I worry about our iPad. I toasted a laptop this past Fall, the vibration killed the HD. A solid state HD would not be affected by this.

    Does the iPad have a solid state HD?

    The ipad memory is soldered to the board... So in a way it's a SS drive. It won't be bothered by vibration like conventional drives.;)

    It has flash memory, just like solid state drives.

    Of course that doesn't mean vibrations won't harm it. I'd put it in a good carrying case with impact absorbing foam.

    It certainly shouldn't suffer any more than having as cellphone on your ride... it's the same technology.

    HD = Hard Drive

    The iPad doesn't have a hard drive, it has flash memory.

    Solid State...Flash Memory......it is the EXACT SAME THING.

    So the answer to your question is yes it has a SSD built in.

    Well, not really, to say it has a SSD (Solid State DRIVE) is incorrect, because it has no hard drive. It's flash memory chips, like someone said above, are a part of the main board, not a separate device.

    Don't forget the new MB Air has no moving HD either--and not much bigger than iPad. And of course a lot of other laptops offer that now too.
