The company believes that that is when the pricing structure of the components will be right for it to enter this market.Kingston believes future notebooks will get two storage slots: one for SSD drives to store the operating system and frequently used software and a second slot for a traditional HDD for data storage.
The first product from Kingston will be a 32GB 1.8 or 2.5in drive and the plan is to ramp up production and capacity over the next few years.
Kingston admitted that SSD will always have a price premium over traditional mechanical hard drives, although they though that when the SSD drives hits a two to three times price premium over traditional drives, consumers will consider them as a viable alternative.
