Like so many other memory vendors on the market, Kingston offers a wide array of solid-state disks for your perusal. For the low-end segment, it has the SSDNow V series, which at current time offer the best GB/$ on the market. We're taking a look at the latest release here, combining a recent JMicron controller with Toshiba NAND.

Certainly. Any sort of light workload like surfing, email, etc should be fine. This drive would be well suited for a cheap SSD replacement for a netbook or notebook drive if you want the durability of an SSD in your laptop.

It's once you start looking for performance that I'd recommend their V+ drive, or perhaps the newer model Velociraptor. I'm not sure I'd recommend carrying around a 10,000 RPM spinning disk in a laptop (in fact I would recommend against that!), but for desktops it's worth a look as it costs the same as this drive.
