    The giz is reporting on an announcement by Toshiba about an upcoming release of their 512 gb ssd. Forget 256, this is more like it. Of course I'm sure it won't be cheap.

    Very cool!!

    Hopefully it won't be too far into the future when SSD prices fall even further.

    Pretty nice. Somehow I don't trust MLC flash because the last few ones I've used have all died on me.

    Probably about the same as for a kidney.

    Very cool.

    Sure it will be expensive.

    I bet the MBA owners are happy as well -- 256GB 1.8 inch version.

    Wow, that's amazing. 256GB would do me nicely but the price... would be outrageous lol.

    Just imagine a 512gb in a 1.8" form inside the new(er) iPod Classic.

    Meh. The fact that there's nothing spinning in there still bugs me.

    I don't see why not. It's just going to be a pain getting to the hard drive.
