That would be nice. I am afraid, we'll have to wait another 3 years before there is a significant drop in price.

I don't think it will take that long at all. In fact, i started looking at the Intel 80GB drives when they were over $500 and when I bought mine I found it for $249-$289. So, within about 1 year they dropped in price by 1/2. As more and more mfg's get into the game with strong controller (Indillinx and SandForce)...you will see more drives and better prices.

Unfortuantely, from what I have read....due to recessions and slower economies worldwide...pc production and part production has slowed thus resulting in slightly higher prices and that trend is expected to continue for the next year or so. For example, look at the price of memory..specifically DDR2. It's has nearly doubled in the past 6 months.
