The GREAT news is that the new Intel SSD controllers are Halogen free. It appears that Apple has avoided Intel SSD because they would hamper Apple's Green initiatives. Those problems are over and hopefully we'll see Intel SSD as options for Macs late this year or early next year.
80GB now is $225 and latency for writes has been reduced
Well that's about what I needed to see. I'm skipping a 320GB Scorpio Black and moving to a 80GB SSD. I really want that performance that only a SSD gives you. I'll move my mass storage to an externally connected FW800 drive.
Looking forward to seeing what the 320GB drive offers.
