It's official -- Samsung has gone off hard disk drives. Not only has the company announced two new portables that use solid state disk (SSD, aka flash) technology, but it recently told Crave that it'll no longer make MP3 players with traditional hard disks, a la iPod.

True to this new philosophy, it's just announced the NT-Q30-SSD 12.1-inch laptop and the NT-Q1-SSD -- a new version of its ill-received Q1 ultra-mobile PC. Unlike the original Q1, the new device features absolutely no moving parts -- the hard drive has been removed in favour of a 32GB SSD.

The swap is intended to make it faster and more durable than its predecessor. Samsung claims the new model can boot up 25 to 50 per cent faster than conventional laptops as it has a read speed of 53MB per second and a write speed of 28MB per second. This allows smoother simultaneous running of multiple applications, plus the reduced weight of an SSD makes the NT-Q1-SSD about 20g lighter than the original

I think they are right. My cardreader can r/w faster then my harddisks in my old server. This because they are slower, and that's only a cardreader!
