    Yep, that bit is easy. Make boot disk from crucial website, boot machine, update firmware.

    The 256GB version has a slightly faster write. However, $180 for a 128GB version is very tempting.

    What's best value $per/GB?

    Can anyone tell me why the prices fluctuate so much?
    Is it US dollar volatility? Does everything on Amazon bounce around?
    Supply & Demand adjustments. Cost price for these would be weeks apart, not like petrol.
    While I um and ah about price, it goes up overnight.
    I've installed the camel firefox plug, but only updates once a day.
