Fujitsu-Siemens Computers has announced that it will start selling laptops with flash memory in place of hard drives by this summer in the European mass market.
The head of FSC Germany, Hans-Dieter Wysuwa, said the company would release a version of its premium Lifebook Q series laptop with a 32-gigabyte flash memory, near the bottom of the 20-to-120 gigabyte range commonly available from laptop hard drives, and announced, "We will then also move relatively soon to 64 gigabytes." The flash memory-based, solid-state disc drive is made by Samsung.
Wysuwa further stated that FSC's new flash-memory laptops would be price at approximately €500 ($688) more than the comparable hard-disc models.
