For hardware that's guaranteed to be obsolete in 10, 9, 8- Oh look! New hardware that's faster and cheaper! I wouldn't spend this much money. If you have lots of massive programs that have all sorts of large extensions you need loading quickly... you would need how much? 160, 320 GB? The rest of the space isn't going to be used as much as you might as well put the rest of your data on a seperate standard disk drive, I think.

Although it's fun to daydream about.

Just wait a year or 2 and this will be down to less than a dollar per GB.
