Faster low-cost SSDs by Samsung
The buzz is real. Affordable SSDs may be right around the corner. These SATA drives are being made by Samsung primarily for netbooks and UMPCs. I can see these going into small tablet PCs that would be ideal in hospitals.
Doctors, nurses, and pharmacists working in hospitals should have very easy access to mobile devices. Whether they use tablets of UMPCs, their devices should use SSDs since devices often get dropped. It will be great when someday all mobile devices use FLASH memory instead of spinning hard drives.
Remember the days of monochrome screens?
