I’m really looking forward to more OEMs like Fujitsu releasing laptops and tablet pcs with flash based harddrives, especially as it relates to start-up speed and heat. Flash-based slate tablet pcs and umpcs are perfect for this.
You can look forward to a head-to-head review from Dennis comaring his eo i7210 to the Samsung Q1-SSD. Should be very interesting…
Fujitsu is putting the finishing touches to a new laptop that will use a Flash drive in place of a traditional hard drive.
Working with two major PC makers, the company will offer a 16GB or 32GB Flash disk as an option with new B-series machines out later this new month and new Q-series machines that will be available from early November. The 16GB disk will add ¥80,000 ( £360) to the price, and the 32GB disk, ¥160,000 ( £720).
The disks are made by Samsung and can already be found in two Samsung machines, the Q30 laptop Q1-SSD ultra-mobile PC. Both machines went on sale in South Korea earlier this year. In Japan, Sony is also offering a version of its small-size UX90 portable PC with 16GB of Flash in place of a hard-disk drive.
The Flash disk has several advantages over a conventional hard-disk drive, including longer battery life and a slight weight reduction. Fujitsu said the B-series machine will run an extra 15 minutes and the Q-series will run an extra 30 minutes on flash disk compared to hard-disk drive.
Most noticeable is faster start-up.
