The price per GB isn't there yet. But at least you can upsell the ones that don't question it when you tell them it will not crash like a normal hard disk will.
-> True story. In my family we have two disasters. One laptop down a concrete stairwell, the other run over by a car. In both cases I extracted the hard disk and retrieved the data.
The hard disk actually faired better than the rest of the machine!
I've been thinking....
Solid state drives (SSD) storage capacity seams to be expanding exponentially. There are clear advantages of using SSD rather than HDD and now with their raising capacity it's possible to install Windows and have all you files on a SSD. I have even heard talk of installing SSDs in desktop PCs.
So with their advantages over Hard disk drives (HHD) is this the end of the HDD? And what's more will we be loosing optical disks and go back to cartridge; will I see the Xbox 720 with a slot for a 64gb SD card?
It is strange how things go full circle....
