Intel has recently lowered the price of their X25-M Mainstream SSD series, with a suggested resell price of $199 for the 80GB model and $415 for the 160GB model. Also added to the product line is a 120GB model that's suggested to be resold for $249. For a comparison of the cost per gigabyte, look below. Following that is Intel's announcement video for the 120GB SSD. Honestly, it doesn't have much to do with their product.
