If anyone is looking for a SSD, you can check it out. 90GB for the price of a 64GB with rebate.

neato, but still too expensive for it to be worth it to upgrade my hard drives to ssd's to me. Id have to sacrifice a lot of capacity to keep it affordable. But its still nice to see it getting cheaper.

you dont really replace your hard drives with SSDs.. you add on teh SSDS for like windows and programs.. so those things start up faster.. and use the mechanical hard drive for things like music,video storage..

What he said. The price:size ratio isn't feasible for the average consumer yet. But I have to admit, the prices have been going down.

Really? And I thought I was pretty tech savvy. I feel a little dumb, but I guess you learn something new every day. I guess they may be included in my next desktop build now. I only run a laptop with one hdd spot right now so I can't really do it on that.

I consider myself tech savvy but dont know shit about software. :P There is so much someone can be tech savvy about its not surprising that you learn something new each day, thats the awesome thing. But yes, SSD are awesome for storing information you want to load super fast, e.g. OS, games, programs etc.

Personally, I would only put my OS on a SSD. Which is what I'm planning to do after I (hopefully) work at the Olympics.
