Samsung Shows Flash-Disk-Based Laptop

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 6:59 am

Samsung Electronics has developed a higher-capacity version of its solid-state disk, a flash-memory-based replacement for hard disks, and is showing it here at the CeBIT technology show.

The drive packs 32GB of flash memory into a case the same size as a 1.8-inch hard 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.

At CeBIT, the solid-state disk is being demonstrated inside a Samsung laptop computer. Because the SSD is the same size and shape as the computer’s hard drive it was relatively easy to replace the hard-disk drive with the SSD, said Yun Mini, a spokesperson for Samsung.
