It wasn't all that long ago when SSD was just a dream. Now, we're seeing it as a stock option from many different vendors. The cost per gigabyte remains high, though it has certainly shrunk dramatically. If you recall, it was not even a year ago that SanDisk was pitching a 32GB unit for $600. The same can be said for hi-def players, when a year ago they could easily reach over a thousand dollars for one. Now Dell is offering both of these units in the same notebook. It may not be entirely cheap, with the Blu-ray option adding on $500 and the 64GB SSD adding on a behemoth $1000, but with more vendors offering them that is likely to change.
The M1530 is already available via Dell.
