Looks like $400 for the 120 Gb SSD. I'm sure some folks would like this. But I'll wait for further price realignment.

As will I. I just broke down and got a new video card for the girls box. Although, I think it's the power supply as the card works fine in my box in the garage. I had to kill folding on it for a bit of trouble shooting. I guess I need to go back to cpu folding on there box. As one video card has died already.

But I'm not one of them, sigh. As always, high quality components cost real money. Double sigh.
