Considering that Intel SSD drives are no longer considered to be the best and fastest available, they need to cut prices. Except for the 120GB model, it looks like Intel SSD drives are still not competitive. I see 60GB drives for ~$100 and 120GB drives for ~$200 all the time. That includes Sandforce (currently the best SSD controller chip) based drives. I recently picked up a 60GB drive for use as a boot/system drive. It creates a nice speed enhancement for the OS. Data needs to be stored on another drive but they are dirt cheap so it's no issue.

that $450 expenditure saved me $1500+
Even so, the price of the 160GB drive seems disproportionate when compared to the $249 price of the new Intel 120GB drive. Prices for SSDs over 120GB seems to command a premium.This is one product where it really pays to shop around due to rapid innovation and frequent price cuts.
