"While the real-world improvements appear only marginal over its
predecessor they *are* improvements. When combined with the drastic
reductions in cost, Intel will be giving the competition a real run for
their money. If the distributors can keep their margins on the slim side,
more and more SSD buying decisions will be leaning towards the X25-M G2.
Let's hope Intel can keep supply high enough to make sure the prices start
low and stay low."
