Look, no hard drive: flash only

Samsung’s solid-state disk drives are clear pointers to the way ahead, so it was with more than a little interest that we checked out a laptop equipped with flash memory instead of spinning platters at CeBIT. — Samsung has developed a higher-capacity version of its solid-state disk (SSD), a flash-memory based replacement for hard-disk drives, and is showing it at the CeBIT trade show in Hanover, Germany, this week. The drive packs 32Gb of flash memory into a case the same size as a 1.8in, hard-disk drive. That capacity is double the 16Gb of a prototype device announced by Samsung last year and was made possible by the continuing miniaturization of flash-memory chip technology.
