A solid-state drive (SSD) is the single best way to boost the performance of any computer. I should know – I bought one and put it into my dying MacBook Pro, instantly giving it a new lease on life. Unfortunately, they are a bit on the expensive side for some people, which is why they haven’t really taken off just yet.

Sometimes, though, sellers will hold pretty decent sales on SSDs; and today, 1 Sale A Day  is doing just that. The online retailer is selling new OCZ Vertex 3 120GB SSDs for just $74.99 today. To make things even better, there’s a $20 mail-in rebate, making the actual price just $54.99. That is one heck of a deal!

At that price, I’m seriously considering another purchase – or two. It would save me a healthy sum of money for any computer that needs a speed boost in the future, like my current Mac mini or my possible PC build.

Let us know if you decide to get one for yourself!
