I was looking at SSD and price tags. You can get 8GB disks with 3 year warranty for £30 now. I didn't realize that. 2.25w power consumption. Just too expensive still and for my needs overkill. But food for thought ..
After seeing your comment on the relatively low prices for SSD, I had a look too. For 12 quid more, you can get a 32GB SSD. Its almost worth getting one and a six quid SSD-USB enclosure to accompany it.
OTOH, a 32GB USB memory stick can be had for as little as 16 quid (7DayShop), although that is USB2. USB3 sticks are currently twice the price, though the performance of the USB2 stick should be adequate enough.
Or how about a 64GB USB stick for 63 quid?
