    I haven't done a lot of research on the corsair SSD, but I know about the Intel.

    The only drawback of the Intel SSD is it's consecutive write speed maxes out at around 100 something MB/s while others go much higher. Unless you are doing lots of writing to the drive, not an issue.

    Where Intel rules is in IOPS and reads which is what you care about when running from an OS, loading programs, etc.

    Considering you get more space for less with the intel drive, go for that one! Be warned though... do your research on SSDs in general before buying one. Be aware of issues like wearing, etc... especially with such a small drive size.

    (Full disclosure, I just purchased an Intel 160 GB flash drive and haven't received it yet, but I'm gitty with excitement :-p)
  2. yea i think ima just go with intel alot of good feedback about that one.
