Hopefully Microsoft configures Windows 8 to have more adaptability to SSD's, I have to do a checkdisk on mine every five boots. Or if they make a SSD version of it that works differently - since HDDs are all about queues.

In this case, you get two minor players combining to possibly form a real alternative to the bigger players. Not entirely a bad thing imo, this time the consolidation might add another realistic choice and drive further innovation in the market.

Casually coming back years later, still SSD make less sense than upgrading other components. My beard is growing quite nicely.
