Well, it's sort of affordable.
Crucial is rolling out an SSD that it hopes will be able to capture those on the cusp of buying an SSD, but waiting for a lower price. The speedy RealSSD C300, which boasts a sequential 355MB/s read speed, will now have a 64GB baby brother for $149.99.
"The 64GB C300 drive is a natural extension of our award-winning Crucial RealSSD C300 product line. This aggressively priced 64GB C300 drive makes SSD technology more affordable than ever, delivers durability for mobile computing, and makes it a compelling boot drive for desktop PCs," said Robert Wheadon, Lexar Media senior worldwide SSD product manager.
In terms of cost per GB, it's still expensive, but if you're looking for a blazing fast medium for your boot drive and system files, this is one of the most attractive offerings at the moment.
