I can see the advantages of moving to solid state for laptops and mobile devices that may not need as much storage. The advantages would be power consumption, speed and more tolerance to impacts during operation. I think the cost is still pretty high. This is about $2 per gig while a hard drive is about 15 to 25 cents per gig. Also, Seagate has a hybrid drive for 28 cents per gig (500 gig), that can give some of the benefits of speed while still having a competitive cost.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
