So are solid-state drives physically bigger so that one with 160GB would be the size of a boombox? The largest "new-type" iPods are only maybe 10GB; it would be very expensive, I guess, to have a device in the triple digits in the newest technology, but is it practically impossible? Or is it practical to have that storage and it's just design that keeps it that low?
Also hard drives crashing -- is it really a physical thing? I restarted my laptop once and after it turned off and turned back on I got a "no operating system" error, but once I reformatted the drive and reinstalled Windows everything was fine. (Thankfully I had everything important on an external hard drive. Now I have an external itself with two backups). If a "hard-drive crash" in that sense can be repaired that easily it shouldn't be too big a deal.
