This isn't the best news, however, the 1 quarter delay isn't too long. With the micron/intel partnership producing a SATA III controller, which is already out for sampling (according to DailyTech), we should have 2 new SSD choices come Q2 2010. Hopefully, we will finally see NAND prices drop in the coming months in order to lower SSD prices to a more manageable level.

To be honest, that was more lack of knowledge.

Should be great.
