I don't know. Most consumer laptops/desktops now either come with SSDs standard or have a small fee to upgrade to it from spinning drives.

New technologies in this area are moving fast. Some new offerings plug directly into the server DIMM slot which allows for lightening fast access since there's a direct connection to the processor. One such offering is from Diablo.  These vendors are working with making standard memory appropriate for robust applications.

@_hm: Yes good options to have, especially the Quick to Sleep option. Anyway it tends to get slower with the chunks of data being put in.

How scared are HDD and SSD manufacturers of cloud storage? At least from their consumer electronics disks.

Will traditional HDDs just count on that their prices will always be lower? They need to create another plus because at one point, people will start to switch (DVD -> Blu Ray, etc.)

@hash.era: I see main advantage of quick to boot and quick to sleep. This way, desktop becomes greener. I like desktop with two large monitors. Often, I do not let desktop go to sleep, as it takes long time to come back. With SSD, this will faster and enrgy can be saved.

I agree on the staying power of HDD, Hailey.  They will remain around as long as the factories that make them, and will probably fade out eventually because the cost/unit will eventually exceed the cost/SSD.   But just as tape survived much long than anyone expected, I think HDDs will be rotating for many years to come.

Yes, performance would determine this.

>>while shipments of PC hard disk drives will fall 14 percent, from 475 million in 2012 to 410 million in 2017.<<

Does this prediction means future PCs or laptops would not have hard disk drives?

@_hm: Yes true good to see laptops with it but not sure how good it will be with desktops. Have anyone tried it ? Experimented at least ?

It will be very nice to see all laptops and most destop with SSDs. What is typical performance gain with SSD as compare to HDD? SSD will be also be greener option due to less power consumption.
