Samsung Q1 SSD is in da house!

Q1 SSDBe vewy, vewy quiet.  Hear the hard drive spinning?  Me neither, because the Samsung Q1 SSD that appeared on my doorstep today doesn’t have a hard drive.  The SSD stands for Solid State Disk and this baby packs a 32 GB SSD in place of a regular hard drive.  The SSD is as quiet as, well, RAM.  The good folks at iCube were nice enough to loan me the Q1 SSD for a few days and I will be offering my impressions of the Q1 as a UMPC and the SSD as a state of the art mobile PC.  I’ve only had the Q1 for a few hours but I can tell you so far this baby is really fast!  It does not feel like a Celeron powered device at all and I attribute that to the SSD.  Everything I do happens without hesitation or the famous disk thrashing, even though it only has 512 MB of memory.  Make sure you don’t miss the soon to be released episode of the MobileTechRoundup podcast where we conducted an on-air boot time race between the SSD and Kevin’s Q1 with a hard drive.  The winner was not surprising but the margin of the victory was shocking to say the least.  I will post some pictures of the Q1 SSD as soon as I find the USB to connect my camera to the PC.  It was last seen before the move to the new Mobile Tech Manor.  The Q1 SSD looks exactly like the other Q1s anyway, it just has the phrase “Solid State Disk” in the upper left corner.
