They are more expensive to make, but then again they'll have to compete with the new generation products. That's when prices will go down.

Same with basically every other electronic device, really.

It's intel and they generally don't play by that rulebook, at least in their CPUs/Mobos.

We've been uttering that same phrase for years now. Prices are still very high when it comes to SSDs. It'll take a while before we see prices drop significantly. =(

Ahh miniaturization, will it never cease to amaze? Still though I don't see magnetic hard drives being being surpassed in the cost per gigabyte metric by SSD's in the future. That is of course only if HDD manufacturers continue to develop their technology...

Not really. Considering that the latest generation of SSDs are going for about $1.75 a gig, and older generations for even less (agility level drives go for about $1 a gig) prices have definitely dropped significantly.

Here's something to chew on: when the intel x-25m g1 80gb was first released, it sold at $600 a drive. I bought my X-25m g1 80gb for $175 2 years ago. The current price is even cheaper if you look around.
