    Default Who would stock 2.5" Toshiba SSD's?

    They have a 512GB SSD coming out shortly so I'm trying to keep tabs on the stockists to see when they are released.

    Any ideas?

    Not when, who would actually sell them?

    256GB Solid State HDD - Hi Performance FileMate is "in" at the moment, in Australia.

    Beyond this, no one knows.

    This is why you're not getting any more responses here.

    Out of interest though, what would you do with a 512GB SSD @ two and a half thousand dollars?

    The reason I asked the question is the Toshiba is supposed to be out end of Q1 2009. They also reckon it will bring the price down so I'm thinking the 256 will head closer to the 1K mark (sandisk is supposed to be releasing a US$400 240GB) and the 512 will probably be closer to current 256GB pricing.

    As for what would I do? Have a really &#^$ fast machine. Seriously though, I carry a lot of documents on my machine and opening apps like Mail when you have 20000 mails is sluggish. I'm looking to turbo charge my machine.
