I don't think we'll see good larger drives at decent prices anytime soon... like $100 for good 160GB's drives. That's the very least I'dd take.

Yeah, maybe a 120gb for $200, that is at least plausible.

They still aren't anywhere near what I'd consider reasonable in respect to capacity/price ratio.

Default ssd & nand pricing

The planets seem to be aligning right now for a price drop. DigiTimes reports that as PC sales are dropping the huge increase of manufacturing capacity built up over the last several years is now Econ 101 vulnerable. That is to say, there is more capacity and supply than demand. Couple that with the new 24nm and 22nm fab processes that are about to be introduced as products, particularly by Intel, and the older products will drop like rocks on the moon, no resistance. Look for all this to be seen early on, i.e., RAM prices dropping over the next couple of months followed by SSD prices dropping as I type, slowly for the next couple of months, but fairly dramatically on older products after the first of the new year.
