Lenovo plans to unveil a technology that can help speeding up the booting time of its systems. Known as RapidDrive, this technology aims to speed up the solid state drives used in Lenovo’s notebooks with the help of Intel SSD 310 and special settings such as a fast-posting BIOS and fast-loading drivers. It is this combination of technology that is known as RapidDrive.

In fact Laptopmag already witnessed the demo of the IdeaPad Y570 which reportedly took just over 10 seconds to boot up. Lenovo plans to provide this as an optional feature in both Ideapad as well as the Thinkpad line of notebooks.

The arrival of this new technology might take about two months from now, but it can go a long way in ensuring that you do not have to wait too much to boot your system up during crunch situations. This feature will of course increase the net price of the system, but the exact nature of this is not known yet.
