Based on historical price drops, we're probably about another year or year and a half from a 1tbd SSD being as cheap as a sweetspot SSD (currently 256, presumably 512 then) and capacity HDD. I suspect that's about when they'll start eating a bigger chunk of the mid end desktop market.

I've bought a 128 @ $300, a 256 @ $330, and most recently a 1tb @ $550, the latter of which let me go all flash in my desktop. I'm well aware that those have been as luxury priced as the $500 graphics cards I buy every other year or so, and the $1000k I spent on a 2560x1600 monitor I bought a half dozen years ago, nevermind the $500 on the behemoth tower from Caselabs I've packed it all into...
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
