Flash Memory Starts to Replace Hard Drives in PCs

First it was reported that Samsung will incorporate flash memory in its PCs. Now comes reports that Sony is in the works as well in creating PCs using flash memory as storage.

The advantage of this is that flash memory is generally faster than hard disks and saves much more power, a feature very important on laptops since it saves on battery life. But I think the biggest drawback still is that flash memory is much more expensive per MB than an ordinary hard drive.
