or should I *gulp* risk on a refurbished drive. I'd rather not, but idk that process. But this will be used as a Windows 8 boot drive. I know these aren't high end, but better than a hdd, right?

Windows 8 will hog up all the space by itself. You won't have room for your programs.

So you want the SSD just for faster boot times? If you're not going to put your applications on there, it won't see any increase in load times. You'll be launching applications more than you will be booting up your computer. So a 32GB SSD seems pretty useless. But if I had to choose, I'd get the Sandisk one.
