SSD’s mainstream moment? OCZ and Intel are racing toward the consumer-enticing $100 mark. Unsurprisingly, the new solid-state drives they offer may be budget-friendly but capacities fall terribly short.  Sure, snappy performance will impress and a smaller power profile is certainly welcome, but I suspect that most buyers and upgraders need more room to store their growing collections of music, movies and photos, not faster access. So in a store shelf battle between a 40GB SSD or similarly priced 1TB hard drive, it’s clear that SSD makers have a lot of ground to cover before purchasing decisions tilt in their favor.
