Video Comparison: Boot-Up Times on Flash vs. HDD-based UMPC


Everyone generally agrees that flash-based memory is usually faster and more efficient than the spinning platters that we call hard drives, but seeing numbers on a computer screen just isn’t that all convincing. I don’t know about you, but I just love videos, so it’s great to get a direct comparison between two Fujitsu U1010 UMPCs and their relative boot-up times.

The first video has the UMPC running on a Solid State Drive (SSD), whereas the second video has the tiny computer launching up from a standard hard drive. As you can tell, the difference in boot-up time is fairly significant and you can probably guess which one is the faster of two.

See for yourself and beyond the power of flash.
