They can go suck man parts
£8.47 per Gig. I suppose it could be worse, but I still wouldn't spend that much money on a hard drive. In fact, can anyone remember how long ago it was when a regulare hdd was priced up similare?
As for these new solid state drives, sod 'em. If there that expensive, i'll just wait till the prices come down, in a few years time. And if they don't take off and get dumped, well, its just one more peice of technology I didn't waste money on.
It's £2.60 per Gig roughly on a serial ata drive for a laptop (a rough average taken from 3 of the most expensive dives i could find) so unless you just have to have a hard drive with no moving parts, its realy not worth it.
