    I'd expect to see them pretty soon then, as netbooks for example could make great use of them. However, people like Samsung will also be making alternatives I guess so it seems that the small ssd bandwagon may begin to really start rolling...
    Old puter - still good enuff till I save some pennies!

    Way too expensive for netbooks, though, surely? Even with prices coming down, these modules will still cost a pretty penny, and are unlikely to attract netbook manufacturers who actually want to turn a profit.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see more netbooks and laptops go for custom and/or integrated storage though. Upgradability isn't important to most users - HEXUS readers excluded, obviously - and it would probably keep prices down.
