Where can I get the best deal on a high capacity Solid State Drives for my macbook pro?

My machine Specs:

2.53 GHz Intel Core i5
8 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
500 GB @ 7200rpm
17"
OSX 10.6.6

I'm not too familiar with the SSD capacity and prices.

Thanks in advance :)

OCZ vertex series is best bang for buck IMHO, the 2 series is widely available but the 3 series will be out soon read about it here OCZ Vertex 3 Preview: Faster and Cheaper than the Vertex 3 Pro - AnandTech :: Your Source for Hardware Analysis and News (http://www.anandtech.com/show/4186/ocz-vertex-3-preview-the-first-client-focused-sf2200)

+1 for the Vertex 2. Put a 240gb in my new workstation build, works great. Got it from Newegg.
