    I'd like to see more SSD development. More of that = cheaper products = hurray ^^

    If they weren't so expensive, I would've bought an SSD for my build. oH well.

    ... and Western Digital released the 1TB, 2.5" Scorpio Blue a long time ago.

    At this point my next computer will be dual drive (small fast SSD with large traditional HD). Would love to see SSD's come down in price and go up in size to the point where i can have one drive :)

    In 2011 SSD's will become more affordable and in 2012-2013 they will become mainstream (good prices and good performance - yes!!).
     
  6. But the 1Tb WD notebook drive is a 12.5mm height drive, whereas the 640Gb drives are the more common 9mm height drives.
