Intel SSD Deal and Price WatchPosted in Computers by JarrettV on 1/30/2010 10:41:00 PM - CST
I'm in the market for an SSD but the prices are still sky high. I'd like to do a fresh install on my desktop machine and install Windows 7. My current Vista install is running out space due to the WinSxs folder. A new SSD would be a perfect reason for a reinstall and a nice speed boost.
I've been running an SSD in my laptop for about 5 months and I love it. The speed and battery life is incredible.
Back in August 2009, I was lucky to snag an Intel X25-M G2 from Newegg for $229.
The price immediately sky rocketed right after my purchase it and it hasn't settled back down since.
I just installed this cool new extension for Chrome called The Camelizer. It watches the price of products at various web sites and shows a graph. I'll definitely use this tool to find the right time to buy.
Update: I was watching the OCZ Agility drive with Camelizer and it notified me of a recent price drop. I was extremely tempted as it also came with a mail-in rebate the lowered the price to $129. This is a great deal for a 60GB SSD. However, I just didn't feel the time was right as I haven't found a cheap copy of Win7 yet. Anyway, within a few hours it sold out!
