Given how few other manufacturers have been willing to give those kind of concrete numbers, it's a nice little perk to help justify the price tag.
Actually, what you are talking about is more along the lines of MTBF. In all reality the 100GB/day is a moot issue since there is no way you would accurately be able to log how much you use the drive and then prove it to Intel for warranty purposes.
