Maybe I can afford one once they get to 12nm. But if the last paragraph is any indication there will probably be only 2 companies left on the planet that can make them that small so prices will be kept artificially high.

I guess I'm confused. INCREASING density will result in REDUCED chip size, and "SHRUNK" density will result in INCREASED  chip size. Clarify please. Perhaps unfortunate choice of words.

You're pretty much right on the money. Intel and Micron are in the process of shrinking NAND flash circuitry, doubling the density of flash chips in the process. In theory, that should make SSDs cheaper to produce and result in lower cost SSDs.

Key word here being SHOULD make SSD's cheaper. But that little blurb in the article about "intellectual property" can't help make me think that it probably WON'T.

which I am pretty sure many of the budget concsious budget enthusiasts like myself are really looking forward to. SSD's are pretty fast, but expensive, which might be why they are not as mainstream as they should be.
