Default World's Thinnest Laptop...

World's Thinnest Notebook from Intel - Mac Forums

"To achieve its small size, the laptop uses flash memory in place of a standard hard drive. This addition also improves battery life up to 14 hours. Also included is wireless connectivity with options for cellular, Wi-Fi or WiMax networks, fingerprint reader, noise canceling technology, and more. "Price was not a concern" for the design."

wow....14 hr battery life!....and uses a flash drive. So it's faster at loading stuff?

I thought it would be. I've been hearing, it's faster than normal hard drives. I could be wrong.

I'm guessing the hard drive is really small then? Less than 20GB or 10GB?

well atm flash drives max out at 32gb and that's $500 but they may throw something new into the mix by the time this laptop comes out
