Ask Slashdot:Time For A PC That Runs Only Off RAM?

Hardware 1

hypnosec (2231454) writes "Google's newly announced Chromebook comes with 1GB RAM and a 16GB SSD drive, the first netbook, the Asus Eee PC 701 came with 512MB RAM and a 8GB SSD Drive. With the price of RAM at an all time low (you can pick up 24GB RAM for under £100), it might make sense to build a computer that relies on RAM exclusively both for long term storage and system memory. The advantages of moving to RAM only are multiple; much faster read/write speeds compared to SSD and hard disk drives, simpler layout (basically just multiple memory module slot), no fragmentation, very little heat dissipation, and much easier upgrade path."

It's like a Mandala made of sand... showing the impermanence of things. Do several days worth of work on your PC, then ritualistically turn off the power and watch everything get wiped in an instant.
