    I'm looking forward to the review of this. Does anyone know if it will support the TRIM command?

    I would like to see a performance comparison SSD vs regular HDD...

    25% battery life savings is a *wee* bit of a stretch of the imagination. The biggest consumers of energy in laptops by far, are the CPU, GPU (or chipset/IGP), and the display panel, each of which dwarf the power usage of laptop hard drives.

    Apparently these things are absolutely blazingly fast. I can't understand why theres no word of a 128gb version though - the pricing would be more affordable, enough that I'd consider buying one for my system partition.

    I'd seriously consider a cheaper 32/64GB version as a boot disk!
