It would appear my raptor has finally crapped out on me, forcing me to pursue new booting apparati. I'm essentially looking for some help wading through the seemingly endless options for ssd's. I'm thinking 128gb probably and bang/buck is where I prefer to buy. Currently I was eying the crucial m4 @ microcenter for $179. Any other suggestions are welcome though, preferably at fry's or microcenter as I'd rather not wait to get my machine back up and running, but a killer deal online is certainly worth waiting for.
