Woah, have you seen the prices of hard drives at the moment?

Almost doubled in price from last year for the same tech. Crazy.

ETA Apparently this is a very recent thing (prices gone up in the past week or so) and the floods in bangkok are responsible.

Yeah, floods in Thailand have impacted on it quite heavily.

I saw that and took the opportunity of buying an SSD instead. I just got a Crucial M4 128Gb drive for just under £150 from Amazon, well worth getting one if you'd like a decent drive and HDD's are out of the question. Looking at that link it's even cheaper a day after I bought the fucker! #-o
