So, in theory, a couple of these plus a SATA to PCI/e RAID chip on a card could provide a very compact boot array.

No doubt pricing is going to be steep due to the current 'accepted' price of SSDs............

Can we please start getting away from the sickening use of "i" in front of everything. It's so 1999.

These look like they could be great.

How much would they really cost to produce? Because I'd be afraid like Almightrastus points out that they'll just put the price up because its "accepted".

This integrated SSD would be great for a boot drive on a SFF system or the slew of tablets we've been seeing. I wonder what they expect the 4GB version to be used in... maybe trying to replace the market for the individual NAND chips used in Phones etc. Should provide much better performance comparatively, but I hope the cost is relatively low as well.

i think this will mainly be ussed in devices like phones and music players

in a few years when these become cheap it will be nice to have 60-120GB of space in your phone or mp3 player

Very promising. Motherboards with onboard boot drive; that sounds interesting.

Very useful for laptops that only have room for one 2.5" drive. This way you could have a fast OS drive and a normal HDD for the page file and other files.

I'm picturing this as the ultimate in USB memory sticks, only with an eSATA plug instead

I bet apple start to use them for their devices, buy in a huge quantity so cheap, then charge users a huge premium for the privilege.

These do look very promising though if the price is right. Android with 4gb system and 64gb onboard...

so you could in theory have one of these built into motherboard to use as a boot
"drive" and have your normal hdds for everything else? if the performance is decent enough

To be honest, you could probably bundle 4 of these together + a raid controller inside a 2.5" housing, to create an awesomely fast single drive.
