    Oh, and one of the bigger burns (unless someone can prove me wrong) is that if say, one buys a new computer preloaded with 8, one could not uninstall that and install a virgin 7. Moreover, if one's...

    Certainly, I may be a huge fan of SanDisk, but I am not their salesman. I think you are prudent to carefully discern which solution works best for you, Brian. And I am also persuaded that in the...

    F.U.N., regarding the IE, I appreciate your sentiment, as I, too, have issues. Mine has glitchy, skipping, jumping, squirrelly scrolling issues. Anyway, I came across this little blurb from MS about...

    For what it's worth... I noticed that Amazon is currently pricing the SanDisk Extreme II 240 GB for $199.99. My goodness, that's a fantastic buy! I realize I am biased SD way. I've just had fantastic...

    One thing I can say that speaks to its favor, Brian, is that the customer reviews overwhelmingly support it. Now I realize one should always expect some reviews will be bogus, but I have done a lot...
