Intel has launched a 40gb SSD for $140 and it is available now on newegg.com
no need to make a thread.
it's actually been out for a while, just badged under the Kingston brand. It is curious why Intel waited this long to release one with their sticker on the drive. However, it should be noted, it is NOT rated the same speeds as the 80gb/160gb x-25's. So you're not just getting a smaller version of them.
the intel one has been out for over 2 weeks.
while the kingston one has been out for months.
Pointless. 40GB is too small to be any use. Just spend similar money on a cheaper make with marginally lower performance and more space.
i'm aware...did i say something to lead you otherwise?
Agreed, what's the point of having a 40GB drive? You can't store items (e.g., large files) that justify the technology.
Because some people like to have the OS and core programs on a small drive while everything else on a larger drive, which is quite possible with a MBP.
Otherwise its pretty pointless to get this just alone for the slower speeds.
I have os x, some small apps, CS4 master collection, office 2008 and iWork 09 (no iLife) and I still have like 30 geebees left on my x25m 80g
