How stupid do you think I am? I have seen 256 MB 2.0 Flash drives go for moar than that amazing 50 GB 3.0 Flash Drive. You should not be hosting bogus websites to falsely raise the hopes of technology addicts... it is hurtful and cruel. Aluminum casing... we all know manufacturers are too cheap to spend a nickel on non-synthetic materials.
You are a bad bad man
Kidding aside... have you taken it for a test drive? I'll take the word of a pro over a company press release any day. Z/Z
No, I' havent tersted one, and I'm not going to.
I could get a bigger, faster SSD for less than a poxy USB 3.0 flash drive.

I, personally, don't see anything fuzzy about RAM disk terminology. Either the data is retained across power cycles/reboots, or it isn't. The memory technology used is either RAM, or it isn't. If it is RAM and is non-volatile, it is extremely unlikely to be the sort of RAM used as part of a system's main memory, which is what the OP was talking about.
A 'virtual' RAM drive is doing it with main system memory. Its a 'virtual' drive in that there is not actual HDD/SSD, its just software making the drive (similar to virtual drives).
Most SSDs doesnt really use RAM, but flash memory instead. If it wasnt for pervious use, I believe that 'flash drive' would be a better description of the vast majority of SSDs around now. The SSDs that do use volatile memory are quite often reffered to as 'RAM drives'. See, fuzzy.
Considering that the OP said "RAM Disk computers in existence do not come in the laptop variety" I dont think they actually know much about the subject, and if they do they werent thinking of using the main system memory as a drive (software RAM drive)....or else they would have known that its totally possible with current laptops.
