Ever since the announcement of flash-based hard drives in upcoming Samsung Q1 and Sony UX models, I’ve been keeping an eye out for these components. After some digging today, I found that DV Nation is selling these solid state drives. Yup, only $1,799 nets you a 32 GB IDE or SATA drive for your UMPC or notebook. *gulp*
The price is way too steep for me to even consider it at this point, but the site makes for some interesting reading. There are PDF documents for various flash-based drives that explain how to install them, technical specifications and more. Even better yet (depending on your budget), I see mention of a 64 GB drive coming later this month. While it may not yet be affordable, it’s great to see the capacity increase coming soon.
