It isn't about getting more seats in a plane

Yeah. Yeah it is. This is why you have seating arrangements designed for the average hypermetabolic midget ectomorph who can exhale, suck it in and hold it for the duration of the flight.

And, if you happen to be a normal sized person or a non-ectomorph body type, or carrying any extra weight at all, said planes are sardine cans where you're expected to die of asphyxiation.

And that's BEFORE the person in front of you reclines their seat and crushes you.

Currently drives that outperform it, like the Samsung 850 Evo, match it on a cents-per-gig level.
This sort of forces one to ask the question, who does Toshiba think it's selling to?

Also, while people are touting Toshiba's "no hassle" warranty, my experience with Toshiba urges me to wait and see how much of a hassle it really is.

I kinda stumbled into telecommuting with my company about 6 years ago.
We'd just replaced our phone system and the new one allowed for remote extensions.
It started out as a day or two a week and converted into full time work-from-home with only occasional trips to the main office.
Mostly because I proved to my employer that I could be trusted to work responsibly from home.

And, even though I've only got a short commute to work (24 miles round trip), the amount of money I've saved in gas (about $1000 a year) and mileage (about 40K) is non-trivial.
