32GB OCZ Core SATA II SSD $99 after Rebate
SSDs dip below $100

It's been quite some time since DailyTech has posted a Daily Hot Deals post, but this particular deal is simply too mind-blowing to pass over. Newegg currently has the recently released 32GB OCZ Core Series SATA II SSD for $159 -- MWAVE also lists the drive for the same price. There is also a $60 manufacturer's rebate which drops the price down to $99 -- this is a new low for high-speed solid state drives.

The 32GB Core Series SSD has write speeds of 83MB/sec and read speeds of 120MB/sec.

There have been some concerns raised about the performance issues of OCZ's MLC-based Core Series SSDs in recent tests, but the sub-$100 price tag may just be low enough to get some users to at least give the burgeoning technology a try.

OCZ is just hoping to move as many as possible to the people who haven't read about the issue.

Most likely.
They would still be good for if you handle the laptop roughly like carrying it around while turned on a lot since it has no moving parts.

Unless youre playing frizbee while trying to defrag your HDD as it downloads mounds of torrents, the "handle your laptop roughly" point is moot.

The amount of Gs needed to screw up a 2.5" mechanical are quite high.
