If Intel X25-M 80GB is too expensive consider Intel X25-V 40GB. Both are very affordable and highest quality SSD you can get. Just don't watch those MB/s scores to judge about speed. Speed is better expressed in IOps; and Intel is king here with high IOps performance for a low price per GB; excellent buy IMO. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
