    Why is the bundle kit $5 more for the 240GB model?

    Dunno price gouging? Maybe it's got something to do with the pen in the video.

    Still though it's pretty nice to see Kingston jump into the fray.

    edit: On Newegg it's a $15 difference. I'd hope there's some significant difference as opposed to "you're willing to pay $500 for a drive so..."

    That's not what we're talking about. We're talking about the difference of the difference. i.e. why the kit for the 240 is more than the kit for the 120 when they apparently come with the same thing.
