It’s only about two months since the last update on storage prices, so not much has happened. The different SSD offerings are difficult to track, though. Anandtech laments how Kingston has a confusing SSD lineup, with six different parallel models. However, the other manufactures are not easy to follow either.

This update adds more of the smaller SSD. I might get a 60 GB one before the 128 GB ones come down below a reasonable level.
