This sounds like a car lease.

Affordable pricing ... but you are hooked for life buying them whenever you get close to your "mileage limit".

The real question here is is this is a 50,000 mile lease or a 5 million mile lease?

If it costs $1,000 but you have to replace it 4 times in the life cycle of a "regular" 128 Gigabyte $4,000 stick then you are back where you started.

The value proposition on the release of the product won't be clear-cut, so I think that's why Intel is targeting a small audience--developers and system architects first. The technology can scale, so the economics should get more compelling approaching 2020.
