What about the Intel X25-M 80 GB? Excellent read speed, though write is a little low. Not sure what the price'd be in the UK, though should be around £150... I think.

How about the 80GB X25-M G2? Too much? If those are the only choices I would go w/ the Crucial M225 64GB.

Depending on your budget and what's available I'd suggest the intel 80G, but if you can't afford that, how about considering one of the intel 40G value series and bank the savings until you can afford something in the 80G+ range?

If you cant afford the X25-M gen 2. I'd go for the Crucial.

Agility 2 or Vertex 2 would be the best right now.

You could go for a Kingston V+ 64GB £150.52

Kingston SSD V+ Series 64GB 2.5" SATAII Solid State Drive Upgrade Kit - Ebuyer

I know I like my V+, but it is the 128GB version.
