We've seen 256GB and even 512GB SSD drives before, but they've so far been confined to the larger 3.5-inch form factor -- not exactly the ideal solution to fulfill our dream of an all-SSD laptop with more storage than we're ever likely to use.

While a natural evolution of the ultra-portable, it's still noteworthy when a vendor gives in and offers an SSD option to their gear.
