Why are we still being charged nearly $2/GB for SSD storage? I've been waiting to pull the trigger and get a 256GB SSD, but the prices are still all around $500. I remember last year people were saying "just wait a six months, SSD will start to become mainstream and drop significantly", and similar diatribe the year before. But fast forward, and its mid-2011. When can it be feasibly guessed that SSD's will actually start becoming reasonable for the average consumer? I fail to see why they are 7x the price but deliver half the storage (a 750GB 7200rpm can be found for ~$80 these days) - are SSD parts made of gold or something? I would have thought they would have become mass-market and a standard in all computers and laptops these days, but they still remain hugely out of reach for almost all consumers.
