I don't really understand why SSD prices are more expensive than magnetic hard drives to begin with. One has moving parts why the others don't. Seems like the one with more parts would cost more but it's the other way around.

128GB for $50 means $2.56/GB not 50c/GB. That might be true for greater capacity drives. LoL, I wish I could buy GB per cents individually xD

128GB for $50 comes out to 39 cents per GB.

If a 128GB drive cost $2.56/GB then it wouldn't be $50. It'd be $327.68

LoL, I don't know why I calculated it wrong! I always consider the relation as GB per dollar not dollar per GB. But you and Paul are right (reading Paul's words again) he said 50 cents per gigabyte.
