My Obsession with the 1 Terabyte SSD

It's just the magic size. Things don't seem right without it.

It's not interesting. You're right, you're right, I know you're right. But it's my thing. I have a hard time imagining buying a computer without an SSD and without a 1 terabyte SSD. We live in a troubled age. Disks must be (at least) 1 terabyte now. And they have to be SSDs.

I project that when MacBooks and Dell XPS laptops start shipping with 1 terabyte SSDs as the low option that sales will skyrocket. SSDs may have actually set us back. I secretly admire HP and others that ship computers with a small SSD and a 1 terabyte spinning hard drive. They get it, what we feel, what we need, who we are.
