I already have a TINY micro sdHc card in my phone (32GB) and a 64 GB one will surely appear sooner or later.
Whether these can replace SSD's yet is a moot point -- but the way to the future is clear --tiny vast storage arrays -- what need for "Cloud Cuckoo Land" -- when we can have maybe several PETABYTES of storage spread out over the size of a few old fashioned postage stamps.
That doesn't mean to say don't get an SSD-- in today's REAL technology they are very much still worth it -- anybody who's used one even an (or maybe specially on) an older machine will say why on earth didn't they get one sooner.
It's almost impossible to convey the difference between spinners and an SSD to people who have never tried one.
I'm not going back to spinners for my OS etc -- even on my laptop I can store all my external stuff on external USB disks or storage sticks so the 120GB SSD I have isn't a limitation on the laptop.
