We've talked over and over again about how SSDs are the best upgrade you can make to your computer, but the formerly-expensive drives have dropped dramatically in price over the past year — which means now may be the perfect time to buy one.
Hard drive prices still haven't gotten down to their normal levels after last year's Thailand floods, but SSD prices have continued dropping dramatically, many models being 65 per cent cheaper than they were a year ago.
Tech Report recently compared the prices of 26 popular SSDs, and they're starting to really show good bang for your buck — a lot of drives, especially higher capacity ones, are coming in at less than $US0.82 per gigabyte, which is fantastic for an SSD. Some of the 40 or 60GB drives, while higher in price per gigabyte, are available for under $US100, and it's pretty easy to survive on a drive that small.
If you still haven't made the jump, now may be the time to give it a shot. Hit the link to read more, and if you do make the upgrade, be sure to check out how to migrate your data without reinstalling Windows.
