Dabs are terrible for this. It's happened to me on several occassions that the price in the basket is less than the price shown after I click checkout. I think once you press checkout it must go update its price. But if you cancel checkout and look at the basket you will still see the old (lower) price. I've called them before about it hoping to get the better price and they will just fob you off.

I load windows, I see the desktop and that's it. everything can be used. I dont have to sit here staring at the background for 2-3 minutes before I can open my browser. I see desktop, I click browsedr it opens instantly. same for winamp, steam or any other program/game I care to run.

even just general useage is so improved. All those little 2-3 second delays whenever you tried to do anything, open explorer, open a file, check the size of a folder.. it's all just about instant now. An SSD doesn't neccesarily make a huge difference for everyone but it does make hundreds/thousands of little differences that make just using a computer such a more pleasant experience.
To be fair, if you have a good computer these delays don't exist anyway, certainly good for booting though. And I guess simultaneous loading.

Same, I'm on a reasonable spec 2011 MacBook Pro and the difference the SSD has made is enormous! It's the most noticeable upgrade I've ever made.

I suppose 99% of peoples computers would get a good deal out of one. On my OCed i5, when I click something it opens, it cant really go much faster. But computers slow down. I'd still say everything would feel a bit better with an ssd, what kinda boot time do you get? I'm just waiting for a cheap 256!

i got a 128 just to see what sort of improvement i get. will try it on my laptop first and then stick it in the pc (i know a lot depends on motherboard also)
if its pretty good ill get a 256 if theyre relatively cheap for the laptop.
heres hoping bargain alerts finds a decent cheap one again soon
