They already ARE standard issue in every gaming desktop, most gaming laptops and many netbooks.

Give it another 5 years when 1tb 2.5" SSDs are the same price as 120 or 250gb ones today and HDDs will effectively be a thing of the past.

The time is now. SSDs are ridiculously cheap now and prices continue to fall. I run a ssd or two in every system I have.

Hell even my father has bought a ssd for his PC and laptop.

(All of these are home built systems other than the laptop)
