It's ultra thin, it's ultra fast. In fact, having a flash drive means that the new Samsung can boot in 18 seconds, versus 31 seconds for a similar laptop with a hard drive. It's clearly hot, but you'll pay for it... The memory alone is $960.

Implications - Considering that technology has become such an important aspect of life in the modern world, being able to bring gadgets anywhere and everywhere has also become a major factor when deciding to purchase a new device. For students, the laptop is a go-to piece of technology that suits their busy schedules. Thus, students are constantly looking for something lightweight with a quick start-up time to ensure ease of use on the go.
