Fujitsu's Flash Based LifeBooks

Fujitsu have shifted to Flash Memory for their latest LifeBooks, the reason being that they are more accessible and durable. The Fujitsu LifeBook B6210 comes with a 16GB or 32GB drive made of flash memory. A flash drive is more durable than a traditional hard drive. You could drop your notebook and at least the flash drive would continue working.

Flash-based tablet PCs constitute a small piece of a niche market, but the two technologies marry well. Flash memory drives hold far less data than regular hard drives, but consume less power.

The downside however is that that flash drives hold a lot less than traditional drives. But the smaller capacity may not be such a problem in tablets, according to Fujitsu.

its effective .. you see .. tablet pcs arent like laptops .. they are smaller versions you can carry around.. and you need all the battery power for that..

i think its a pretty good idea !
