Whether it be it on a notebook, tablet or mobile phone, we're all guilty of keeping some or all of our personal, financial and business information in one or more devices. Thanks to the variety of apps and on-demand Internet, we enjoy easy access to our information during long days at the office, waiting for the train during the commute, or down time in our personal lives.

At the start of 2013, I noted the "top-rated" and "highest reviewed" client SSDs listed online offered pricing at a low promotional retail cost $0.76 ~ $0.681 per gigabyte (GB) and over time tracked the cost per GB down to $0.69 ~ $0.65 by the end of 20132 .
