If only the mfrs could get the price down to say .75¢ or less per GB then it would
be a worth while upgrade for the average user even at say $1.00 per GB it wouldn’t
be all that bad of a price.

But at $2.11 or higher per GB it just isn’t worth it for the average user to invest that
kind of money when .40¢ per GB or less will get you a 2TB hdd for only $90.00. I don’t
know about everyone else but for $100.00 less I can get 910GB more space or pay the
price of $190.00 for a 90GB SSD or pay $90.00 for a 2TB hdd I do believe I’ll take the
old spinning platters hdd myself. :iagree:

Interesting to see more in-between capacity SSD drives. For example, some will find 60GB too little for a Windows 7 installation, but 120GB to be too costly, so the 90GB fits in nicely.

For a desktop, a combination of SSD for OS and HDD for storage is the way to go, but for a laptop, the hybrid Seagate drive recently reviewed here seems to offer the best balance between cost per Gigabyte and performance.
