...a more interesting article summary would read "a number of issues will keep HDDs from closing the performance gap with flash for some time". I'm not willing to give a vendor money for more space: I already have too much - and new PC's ship with more GB than an average user will ever fill.
But as a consumer I will pay for more speed: especially since switching from HDD to SSD is a material improvement (as opposed to spending the same upgrade money on a CPU that's 15% faster). And businesses definitely see the benefits, especially in common virtualized environments: where IOPs are precious and expensive to obtain with traditional HDD arrays. We could run a lot more VMs on the same RAM and CPU at work, once we slapped a couple SSDs in the drive trays.
I have a fileserver that will be fed replacement HDDs as they die, but that's it. Every other computer I touch gets nothing but SSDs.
