Intel have begun shipping the 160GB version of their X25-M solid-state drive. The new SSD doubles the capacity of the previous model, the 80GB, and is initially only available in the 2.5-inch form-factor; a 1.8-inch 160GB X18-M SSD will begin shipping in January 2009. No official pricing has been announced for either drive; however the 80GB X25-M currently retails for around $540.
