Kingston's little 40GB SSDNow V Boot Drive is all about bringing SSD technology within reach of budget buyers, but Kingston are about to make the reach even closer with a smaller 30GB Boot Drive SSDNow V series drive.

This is set to become available as of next month with an initial promotional price of just $79.99 after rebates, though that's only available in the U.S. - Standard pricing will be $110, around $20 less than the current 40GB model.

A quick run over the specs; this little solid state drive is of course in 2.5-inch form, uses a SATA 3.0Gbps interface, carries a MTBF of 500,000 hours and read and write speeds of 180MB/sec and 50MB/sec respectively.
