Fujitsu Joins the "Look, No Hard Drive" Club


Later this month, hardcore gadget nerds in Asia will have a choice of three HDD-free laptops and one UMPC when Fujitsu joins Samsung and Sony in pimping portables with sturdy flash memory in place of feeble little spinny platters.

Although pricing and specs haven't been finalized yet, plumping for the chunks of Samsung-produced flash in the B- or Q-series laptop PCs will add ¥80,000 (US$669) or ¥160,000 ($1,338), for either 16GB or 32GB slabs, to the already-hefty ticket.
