Hibernate to Flash? A great compromise!
UMPCs are starting to be released with flash memory hard drives. Large flash drives use less power than a conventional hard drive, so they are an obvious choice for an ULTRA MOBILE device. But they are EXPENSIVE. ThoughtFix suggests a great compromise. Let us hibernate or standby to Flash. Flash is faster than my seagate and less volatile than RAM. It doesn’t have to be a lot (2-3GB) to take on the task, so it won’t add hundreds of dollars to the price tag.
