An external hard drive to perform backups of critical data onto that you can keep offsite in case your house/apartment is robbed or burns down.

Great ideas! The fastest SSD of Intel is quite expensive. But I still might find one. I just got new memory, so i'll just stick it there

I have backups for the small space I have, I don't use a lot of DATA.

Keep 'em coming!

I recently got an Intel 320 series 80GB SSD for my laptop. It's been a solid drive thus far. I have the 80GB Intel X25-M G2 on my home desktop.

Hows the performance? Can you feel this awesome known Intel power?

Most any good SSD will do the same because they all have an access time of 0.1ms - and it is the access time that really counts. Differences in Read/Write times are pretty unimportant. The look nice on Atto or HD Tune charts but do not really mean much for the performance of the OS.

I would buy where you get a good deal. I have 60GB, 80GB and 90GB SSDs (Intel and OCZ) and they are all plenty large for the OS. All I do is move my large user files to a HDD - and on the laptops I keep some on external devices.

Thy say that the Intels are the most reliable. I never had trouble with either the Intels or the OCZs (except the very first one that I bought 3 years ago - but that was replaced without asking questions)

Performance is good. While the Intels don't always have the best specs, they have always performed reliably for me and that is what really matters.
