    Solid state drives are the new cutting edge technology for small laptops and users who need a better performing memory drive, without worrying about trouble. Most hard drives do not compare to the stability of the solid state drive.

    With Vista treating SATA drives and SSD drives the same, it is nice that Windows 7 was re-engineered for support/compatibility for SSD drives. :)

    Still too expensive for the mainstream...I guess we have to wait a couple of more years...If this tech doesnt start to catch on it might be phased out just like the mini disc and the beta max...
  4. I think the price is right, just want more than 35mb on the writes. I ordered the drive anyway for a ThinkPad SL510. I will see how it goes.
