How fast is it though? Fast enough, or will the r/w/access times make
everything slow? Not all SSD is created equal.
There's a "new" SD format too - up to 2TB.... Prolly within a couple
years, or maybe someone will get some federal stimulus funds and
manufacture it sooner! After all, it could help us solve the "Climate
Change" issue, that's always a good way to get money....

Subject: you're not going to believe this.
you guys aren't going to believe what i just found on the web
the ASUS Eee-901 [or is it the "900"]. it was for the 9- and
10-inch screens. i was using konq which just segv'd so i am
taking a break and thought i'd share this.
last night, i could barely believe the ten-inch with a 40GB SSD.
these mini-notebooks take two memory chips. they just plug in.
i was googling around and found they have 32's and even 128's.
so you can get 64 or up to 256Gigs of solid state disk ...
not in a year or two (or five or six), but now.
i'll double and triple check to make sure this isn't a sham, but
they had a thing on you-tube... Oh, and next time i see the
speech therapist, i'll lug my hugmongous thinkpad and demo what
i've done with my scripts and flite....
8 kilobux for a Doze speech dev my butt. with berkeley unix and
open source tools, you can have it for a few hundred bux.
