    Today only. Newegg has the Crucial M4 CT512M4SSD2 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) for $389.99 - $30 off promo code EMCYTZT2095 = $359.99 with free shipping.

    What do you guys think? That seems like a pretty solid deal to me.

    This is a better deal
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226254

    Check the specs & compare. The Mushkin has 2,000,000 hours vs 1,200,000 hours for the Crucial.
    The crucial is also a thicker SSD and will not fit into most machines. The mushkin is 70mm and will fit almost all machines without any problem.

    Thanks..I just ordered it for my new cMBP. It's actually 40 off...makes it even a better deal.

    But you trade that for reliabilty as many reviews say it died in days.

    worth buying now or wait till say Black Friday and maybe there will be something of a better deal? I just bought a new 2012 macbook pro 13 inch. Sold my 2010 air that had a 256gb SSD in it and I miss it already.

    EDIT: Never mind my buy.com comment, that promo code is $40 off, not $30. The drive is $349.99 at newegg, and that's an AWESOME deal.


    buy.com has a good deal on this as well. They've been around forever, but I've never bought from them, so I'd probably just go with newegg.
