A 256GB SSD is less than $50.

A 512 SSD is less than $70

A 1TB is around $100

A 2TB is less than $199.

This better be really cheap. I see no reason to be making SSD smaller than 512GB or 1TB.

Grandma's PC for reading news and watching cat videos can still do fine with a 128GB SSD.

It really depends.

When I buy my mother computer equipment, it's solely for using MS Office and PDFs.


Anything beyond that, she's using a tablet (my old iPad) or hersmartphone (I bought her an LG STYLO 4).

128GB SSD is something that should be built into the device at this point.

a bit late in the game to release pci-e 3.0, bring on pci-e 5.0 already.
