Samsung has a new laptop prototype that doesn't use a hard-disk drive; it runs on 32 gigabytes of flash memory. Steve Inskeep talks with David Pogue, technology columnist for The New York Times about the device. The flash drive reads data three times faster, and writes data 1.5 times faster, then a regular hard drive. The technology also requires less electricity and takes up less space than the standard disk storage system.
