Newegg offers the Patriot Burst 480GB 2.5-inch internal solid state drive for $68.99 shipped. Amazon regularly charges around $95 when in stock, and some third-party listings go for a bit less. This is the lowest we’ve tracked historically and is the best available. If you’re still running a regular hard drive in a computer, this is a must-have upgrade to add more speed and reliability to any system. Rated 4/5 stars from hundreds at Amazon.
