You bet I want it, but I’ll have to give these at least a year or two for prices to become more reasonable. Early adopters, knock yourselves out and enjoy.


I’ll be ownin’ one by summer I bet.  I just can’t stop myself!


I just got a 500Gb HDD for my Macbook. List price $89. I really like the idea of SDD but the price has to fall a LONG ways. OTOH LCDs became inexpensive in just a few years. Hard drives grew from tiny to many Gb in half a decade. I’ll wait until 2015 or so. They’ll be much more reasonable by then.
