The problem with SSDs other than they lack the storage capacity most of us want as a main storage drive inside a computer is that they are expensive. Intel has revealed a new SSD aimed at the notebooks, netbooks, and desktop users who are looking for an SSD boot drive on the cheap.

The new Intel SSD is called the X25-V and is priced at only $125 with 40GB of storage. The drive is intended to be used, as a boot drive in most systems since 40GB isn’t enough for most users today. Intel claims the SSD is good for up to 43% faster overall system performance.

The X25-V uses 34nm NAND flash and supports Windows 7 Trim functionality. The big catch with this drive compared to the cheap OCZ Onyx is that Intel offers the $125 price on lots of 1000. The Onyx is under $100 for a single drive.
