    This makes me think, when are we gonna start looking at SSD's crashing to the wall? or even better, are we gonna watch a limitation on speed boost?
    Its like 50MB speed increase for each generation but the capacity has been taking small steps, i prefer a higher capacity than more speed because those 500MB/s are enough for any Game/Work

    I agree the Western Digital VelociRaptor WD6000HLHX has 600GB and is SATA 6.0Gb/s and only costs $250 at newegg and If you look around you can get one for $200. So why would I ever want to purchase a SSD when a 250GB drive costs almost $600?

    I want an SSD but I'm playing the waiting game. By the time I build a new computer I hope good SSD's are cheap.

    I'd happily pay $200 extra for a 250GB SSD. Too expensive at $584.

    come-on Intel, shrik your margins a bit.
