Those won't be that useful until all memory is solid state. Things like PCI-Express and easily upgradeable GPU's will help a lot now. By the time the industry moves to solid state, it will be time to buy a new laptop. This coming technology is less than 6 months away, and since laptops aren't priced like PPC's, I won't be buying a new laptop every 6 months like I do with PPC's. In other words, this wait fits the typical notebook buying period while the thing you mentioned don't.
