+ - The race is on: Apple and LG plan flash laptops

PetManimal writes "Computerworld reports that both Apple and LG are racing to get Flash-based laptop to market. Another source says the Apple laptop will run a "lite" version of Mac OS X, for release in the second half of this year. The LG Flash laptop is supposedly much further along the production cycle, and will supposedly hit the market in just a few weeks. There are a bunch of advantages to using Flash technology, says the original article:

A shift to flash memory for storage in place of much slower hard disk drives would eliminate one headache for consumers: lengthy start-up times when turning on computers. Apple already uses flash memory in its iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle music players. Flash memory is lighter, uses less power and takes up less space than hard disk drives.
"

Nobody's gonna believe that computers are intelligent until they start coming in late and lying about it.

Working...
