    Did they mention any prices?

    that 256GB SSD is an awesome thing and Id love to have a couple of those in my computer. Games on one and the OS on the other. Then I could use my 250GB drive as storage :)

    I don't know, I was sure there was an implied "more than anyone can afford" on that 256mb model...

    No prices that I've seen either. What's worse is that you can't find these available anywhere. I think the big shops are buying them up for OEM reasons at least that's my guess.

    I would want it... because:

    1. Cable management would rawk
    2. Silent
    3. Page file would become my new RAM.
