I'm sure it is a good deal - but when I make my first foray into SSDs, I'm likely to go for a 32GB or 64GB, which is more than enough room for my operating system and the programs (Office, Chrome) I use frequently - and which will cost much less. Or am I missing somethhing?
Chronos: I can't disagree - thanks. This isn't really hi-jacking the thread as such, so... If I get one, I'd get one for my XP machine. I've read mixed things about XP and SSDs, though - can be more trouble than it's worth. While W7 has SSD support built-in - in terms of optimising usage - I believe that, at best, you need to do a lot of manual 'housekeeping' with SSDs under XP, and at worst, they don't work very well at all. Do you - or anyone - have any insight into all that?
