How much owc ssd to buy

Considering upgrading my 64 gb ssd to 240.
That would give me an even 304 gigs with the external dock.

Would you reccomend this one, 128 or 480.
The 480 is like 700$ and too expensive for me.
The 240 is 319 with the dock.

It all depends on your needs, really. If you plan on using a lot of storage, I suggest going with the 240+dock. However, 128 might be more economical.

What will you be using the extra storage for?

The 240+Dock should be more than enough. However, I currently have 128GB on my MBA and haven't had any trouble with storage space (I store my photos on an external drive, but music is stored internally).

Actually I just saw the 180 gb ssd and that may be what I go with. Which would be like 250gb total with dock which should fit my needs.
