Intel SSD 320 Rebates - Prices Under $1/GB
The $1/GB price point for SSDs is held by many as the tipping point for SSD adoption on a mass scale. Well for a few days anyway, Intel is offering $80 rebates on their 60GB and 120GB 320 SSDs, taking prices to $80 for the 80GB capacity and $110 for the 120GB capacity. Intel is offering a $130 rebate on the 160GB capacity. The offer is good for purchases today through the 28th.
The SSD 320 (Intel SSD 320 Review) does wonders for legacy machines who are still using the SATA 3Gb/s interface, and at these prices, you can pick up two and put them in RAID0 (Intel SSD 320 RAID0 Review) where they do very well.
The rebate is for purchases made through Amazon.com:
It looks like Amazon is sold out of all but the 80GB capacity.
NewEgg has the Intel SSD 320 in 160GB capacity for $155 after $120 rebate.
