With hard drive prices expensive, this is a very good alternative to look to. A very fast, inexpensive SSD to boost your system performance is nice to have. Although the price is not available, we suspect it to be pretty close to $1 per GB as the specification is still SATA II, however, have a nice 3 year warranty in case of problems. Let us know what you think about this!
