That OCZ slashes their prices now that the performance numbers for Intel's SSD are out, destroying the OCZ drive in most benchmarks.  It just shows the price premium manufacturers charge when there is no competition and they can get away with it.

does anyone have the link for these benchmarks?

Also I dunno if I'd care about benchmarks too much for SSD as far as buying them is concerned.  I'd probably just go with whatever's cheapest, since it's going to be ridiculously fast either way.

Sounds like a sweet deal.  Is is possible to convert this for use in a desktop system (in other words, 3.5" SATA)?

yeah that's the one short fall of SSDs manufacturers tend to completely ignore the desktop market. I think 2.5" sata uses different connecters for power and data than 3.5" if so you could probably find some adaptors and duct tape

Pick up one of these.  I own two and they work great and I also have 2 OCZ SSDs 32GB running in them striped.
