Intel Launches Cheap Solid State Disk Drives

perhaps this is the better way of jump starting from platter/moving parts to solid state etc - afterall, it took how long to get a hdd from a few mb, to a gig, to hundreds of gigs to a tb etc, solid state is doing the rounds faster, and this seems a more affordable, cheaper beginning/intro to it.

Except an 8GB flash drive only costs 25$ (retail) and why change the USB interface? It would be cool to just "eject" your USB drive when your wife needs to borrow your lappy, then she can just put her's in and boot off that. Maybe have a notch under the keyboard that most USB flash drives could fit in, or hook up with some manufacturers on a standard external size for usb flash drives, then you can actually insert it/eject it. I would say use SD/compact flash etc, but that's not as fun, too straight forward.

hey guys,

you all have lack of knowledge in SSD technology... there are many advantages in using this technology compared with the existing HDD, two of the most important advantages of SSD are: power efficiency and its Burst rate or speed... also, you cant use the USB interface as your interface in your main memory because it has may limitations with regards to memory capacity handling and data transfer capability...

so, dont judge the performance of the SSDs, you might want to use it in your own computers...
