re: Ultrabook shortfall trims outlook for SSDs

As the prices of SSDs keep coming down and their performance improves, I am reading about more and more people who have removed perfectly functioning (but relatively slow) hard drives from their computers and replaced/upgraded them with (usually lower capacity) SSDs as a way of speeding up their boot times and generally making their computer more responsive (and quiet). As a bonus they keep the hard drive and put it in a relatively cheap box and use it for extra storage or backup. It makes me wonder how many SSDs are being sold for this purpose?

Now if only they can make SSDs more stable, then more people would buy them and bring down production cost to market. I'm on CodeProject: http://www.codeproject.com/Members/Veronica-Hill
