Both are out of my price range, and are American mate.

EDIT: wow, found a sweet deal. I don't think i can pass this up, i'll look at reviews some, but this is one killer deal.

NCIX.com - Buy OCZ Core Series OCZSSD2-1C64G 64GB 2.5IN SATA2 Solid State Disk Flash Drive SSD 2 Year MFR Warranty - OCZSSD2-1C64G In Canada.

EDIT: UGH, no longer available.....this sucks.

hmmm, i'll check out some reviews. Thanks for the link...

EDIT:wait a second, that is the same one in my OP (just warp is not in it)...im gonna dig threw a lot of reviews before i decide on it. I have seen 2 really bad ones, but i do not know how reliable they are...

EDIT: According to this the drive is good if you get one that does not fail within the first few weeks... there are alot of reviews saying it is great, but there is enough saying that it might fail that has me concerned.
