Man, saw the first couple and thought hmm, good deal.

That 480GB one is crazy. Ordered.

surfisup1000: 1tb drives at this price point a year from now?

nice




Will be pretty great - 1TB is already max for laptop spinning drives. If/when SSDs reach that/exceed that at a decent price point then no more spinning disk!

There is some weirdness going on there - when you go through the link it disables Amazon Currency Converter - so you never see the NZD value.

I got caught as it normally shows NZD at the last check-out page. I have cancelled my order. Converted it is roughly $275 which is still a great deal, but less of an impulse purchase.
