    Personally I don't mind keeping my G1s since OSX doesn't even implement TRIM. And even if they do (I think a long time coming since Apple is always so slow), it appears the G1 is still a strong contender even in it's used state.

    What I paid for my G1s:

    X25-M SSD 80GB $240.00 (Gen 1)

    X25-M SSD 160GB $480.00 (Gen 1)

    I bought these drives awhile ago and I just love them! Pretty awesome!

    Anyway, I hope enough people complain to Intel to change their mind about implementing TRIM on the G1s. If they do, the G2's will have a run for their money. I hear they might change their mind if they get enough negative feedback from the early adopters, let's hope it works. ;)
