I really would love to have one of these. The price is still so high though

I want 2. And actually $200 for a 60GB drive with THOSE Read and write speeds is pretty awesome, Considering the Intel 80GB with similar read/write speeds costs $600.

Shoot I would get 2 of those 60GB and run them in raid in a heartbeat if I didn't already have 2 raptor x drives. I couldn't justify replaceing them for the amount of money it would cost. If I was considering dropping the money for some performance drives though and din't have raptors it would be a no brainer.
