    Now, how to run a PCI/e cable to the drive bay in my laptop? :)

    Peace,

    And in ten years that will be the norm for everyone and seem slow for the high end market. Yikes!

    Winters,...
    Good for Sammy!

    A month or so ago, they announced similar jumps in technology for transmission, i.e., staggering internet speeds.

    I'm a believer. I'll believe it when I get it at home....

    I didn't see anything about life expectancy though. SSD drives have a limit on read/writes and become trash, not even a good paperweight, after X amount.

    Not trash, just read-only. And that's after up to 100,000 read/write cycles.

    No, not even read only. We've done extensive testing of SSD drives here. After 100,000 cycles they become total trash.
