Oh wow! That's an amazing deal. I've heard mixed things about their rebates however.

I want that for my laptop.

Is there a PATA version?

I bet Mac OS would run crazy fast with an SSD. The bottleneck for me is the hard drive right now. Always crunching away....

That's pretty slow for a 60GB. I'd go with Vertex. More costly, but worth the price.

why pay twice the price for 10mbps more...? it's still gonna be fast anyway, ~5% faster for ~twice the price isn't worth it imo...

10MBps seems small in the scope of 200+. That's a huge number when we're talking conventional drives. Why does it change when we start talking about SSD's?

because you cant directly compare the speeds of an SSD to a Platter HDD
electricity is so much faster then an electric motor could ever hope to be

I'm making the point that 10MBps is still a large number. But the idea of 10 being large gets lost when it's compared to 200+ numbers. And I don't see why that is. 240 is still noticeably faster than 230. Those numbers aren't spot-on either.

yeah, those are the laws of mathematics, everything is relative when talking numbers, 240 compared to 230 is not gonna be "noticeably" faster, it'll be 4% faster, a program that loads in 1 second on a 240MBps SSD will load in 1.04 seconds on a 230MBps SSD, you can notice 4 hundredths of a second...? you are a rare specimen my friend, very rare indeed...

EDIT: hope I finally got it right, lol, is that worth doubling the price, not imo, but maybe it is in yours, now going from a conventional hdd to SSD would be noticeable...
