I'm presuming that the Newegg prices you quote are for TB drives, not GB drives?  Because I can buy 1GB throwaway flash drives at Office Depot for way, way less than $55.

Personally, I'm waiting for the prices on the latest round of high-speed MLC flash SSDs to come down to a reasonable range -- higher capacity in the same space as a 2.5" laptop drive, although the prices per GB are still much higher.
