Newegg has the Intel 320 80GB SATA II 2.5" SSD for $120 ($70 after MIR) for their daily deal. Performance is lagging behind the current crop of SSDs but it's pretty decent (still way better than HDDs) and Intel drives are reputed to be quite reliable. While the Intel 320 series did have some issues at launch, it's now been fixed with newer firmware.

Rebate comes in the form of a prepaid card.

Intel is trying to dump all of the overstocked 320 inventory due to the issues with the 8mb failures of the 320 series SSDs. If you want more info, just google Intel 320 SSD 8mb and you'll have all the information you'll need on the issue.

Buyer's beware.

The fine print on the rebate says it is an American Express prepaid card, usable wherever American Express is accepted. That may not be as many places as Visa or Mastercard - again, buyer beware.
