Default Re: How About Solid State?

Believe me, I'm a cutting edge technology freak....

But I don't think SSD's aren't worth it... yet. Why? Figure you'll get at least 2 years out of a conventional hard drive. Right now it's bigger and faster than any SSD on the market. 2 years from now the SSD's will be bigger, faster, and much cheaper.

The only thing I think they'd be worth putting in right now is a laptop that is constantly on the go. But even there, conventional hard drives in roughly abused lappies usually hold up longer than the laptop's battery pack will.
