Cautious Trend in Flash Memory Movement Towards the PC

Since price levels of flash memory per GB hasn't yet reached the low levels of traditional hard drives, industry people are still cautious on their outlook on how manufacturers will incorporate their hybrid counterparts.

"About 5 to 10 percent of the world's laptops will have flash inside in 2008 and about 20 to 30 percent in 2009," according to Dave Lee of Kingston.

I agree with this prognosis since people will still go for the cheaper ones at the outset and for very good reason. Laptops and PCs are expensive by themselves so people will probably scrimp on the hybrid feature. The launch of Windows Vista however will add to sales since it promises to leverage to the power of flash memory technology.
