I just read about this very thing. david_42 points out an important concern, but the way memory technology advances, I imagine someone will come up with a solution relatively quickly. Access speed won't be a problem - that's the beauty of solid state drives - access speed is GREATLY increased. Samsung is already marketing a hybrid drive
that uses a flash memory cache.
