Toshiba SSDs Heading to 512GB

Toshibassd128gbThe size of Solid State Drives (SSDs) keeps marching upwards and we hope the price keeps coming down. Toshiba is about to roll out its 128GB models this summer but is now talking about improvments in their manufacturing that will lead to 512GB SSDs in 2009. Those same improvements should lead to price reductions as well. According to this article from Electonista several other companies are looking at bringing 256GB size SSDs to market by the end of the year.

So here’s a question. What’s the price value point for you? Right now SSDs add a pretty stiff price premium to any Tablet PC or mobile computer you might buy. How does that figure into your decision. I know Rob loves SSDs and swears he won’t go back to a spinning hard drive. What about you?
