Before I dish out $3000 for a new Sony Vaio, can someone tell me more about these flash based hard drives?  Apparently there is no more spinning disk?

What are possible problems that a flash hard drive would pose?

Is it easier to wipe data securely off of this hard drive (vs a spinning?)

Should I wait until they get bigger? Right now, the biggest flash based hard drive is 32gb. Kind of small when you are shelling out $3000. How upgradeable are flash based laptops?
