Speaking of SSDs, Amazon has dropped the price on a number of models, including both Crucial and Samsung. The best deal right now is for the former's 480GB M500, which is going for $US229.99, plus $US7.51 delivered -- or $262 in local coin.
As spotted over at OzBargain, all M500 drives are currently discounted by the online retailer, as are Samsung's 840 EVO series drives. For example, the 500GB is $US276, down from its RRP of $US479.99.
Undoubtedly SSDs will continue to get cheaper, but at these sale prices its feasible to get a decent amount of flash storage -- in the half-a-terabyte range -- at a competitive price right now.
