Re: 2011 SSD pricing (for drives >= Intel G2 X-25V 40GB perf

At the moment Amazon has only the 80 GB left. Price after rebate: $69.95.
Newegg has the Intel 320 120GB for $119.99 after mail-in rebate.

I'm with kater. The faster 939 dual cores go for about $100 or more on ebay. For a few dollars more you can get a new motherboard, CPU and Ram that is much faster and much lower power.
