Flash-only laptop: goodbye disk drives!

Yes, it's finally happening!

I've hated disks my whole life, and it's finally happening, they're finally dying!

The article does a disservice, though, noting that rotational drives' peak throughput is marginally higher. You never get peak throughput. A flash-based harddrive with zero seek latency will be so fucking fast it'll be unbelievable.

Can't wait.
