    "Samsung hopes that falling prices for flash-memory chips will mean solid-state memory can eventually replace hard-disk drives in Apple PowerBooks and iBooks as well as other devices, Macworld UK is reporting. The benefits? - silent; less power; reliable and faster."

    that is if they can build them big enough, and up the times you can read/write on a flash drive

    Hmmm... that just made me think about how Apple really should have some form of compact flash or sd card reader built into its high end 17 inch PowerBooks since professional Mac users have always 'typically' been of the computer graphics, web design, photography i.e. media orientated professions. Surely that would be a welcome addition?

    Would be nice to have the OS installed on flash memory.
