    I'm betting on "coming soon!" and "do you want this or a 40-inch HDTV?"

    How much is the 128 GB version? I hope the 256 GB one will cost no more than double that ...

    Keep on dreaming.
    Price rates are usually exponential for these kind of things.

    It has always been a roller coaster. It get released and surges high, then after a while it cools down a bit.

    Yes, it will be super expensive... but prices on this stuff usually fall pretty rapidly. The good part is this is now sized large enough that it can replace a traditional drive without any big tradeoff in size. To me, I don't anticipate ever really needing a laptop drive bigger than this. Give it a year and then these will start really hitting mainstream I think. "Eventually", solid state drives are going to have to get cheaper than drives with mechanical components.
