    Haven't seen anyone mention this article: Intel to Dramatically Boost Capacities of Solid State Drives by Year End

    I wonder how much the 600GB will cost given that 512GB models run $1400 to $1500.

    Why not smaller like 40GB and 80GB? I'm not interested about the sizes, more about the prices. 40GB for around 70e would be awesome, would get 4 of them and raid them.

    It would be nice if they could sell them at ~$1 per GB..

    80GB = $80
    250GB = $250
    600GB = $600

    ..wishful thinking I know, but until I can get a 250GB SSD for under $300 im not getting one.

    Not sure what other online e-tailers sell but newegg has 1TB SSDs, I believe they're the OCZ Colossus series for about 2K O_O

    I never read or researched so it may be 2 "512s" in a RAID on the board and it's not a SATA connection I believe...

    They do have and have had 512GB SATA drives on their site for months now.... but the more larger capacities they put out hopefully the lower ones will drop some in price.

    Yea, the OCZ's Colossus is made of two 512GB disks in RAID 0
