I don't think we will be seeing too much of this next year - at least not in these higher storage ranges. The price of SSD isn't going down fast enough that I could imagine people flocking to buy laptops containing this technology (not to mention that most people don't know the difference between a SSD and a STD). From my experience, most people looking for smaller and slimmer laptops are also looking not to spend too much cash. It's a shame though, I have been using solid state drives in my PC's for a while now and the performance increase + noise reduction is simply amazing! I wish that this would become a mainstream solution sooner, but manufacturers are going to need to do better on pricing (whether or not that is possible at this time is a different story).
