Seriously though. 'Cheap' and 'instant on' are made in comparison to what's currently on the market. It's not made to be interpreted literally. Plus 'cheap' has no concrete definition.
I'm interested in seeing how this performs. I've always thought that even a 'slow' (and therefore cheap) SSD will still be a much better option than a HDD.
Well it was mostly the quote, it said without the high cost normally associated with SSDs. Seems like the high price is still there. I mean you can get an Intel 80 GB for about $230? at Newegg since about last June. There doesn't seem to be that big a difference in price compared to that.
