    I just purchased a i7 and received the Toshiba 256GB SSD. I am not sure if I am happy about not getting the Samsung or not. Hoping someone can clarify a few points:

    First:

    Can someone with the Samsung 256GB drive check their negotiated link speed by going to the Apple Logo > About This Mac > More Info > System Report - under the Hardware Tree > Serial ATA you should see the following:

    Intel 6 Series Chipset:

    Vendor: Intel
    Product: 6 Series Chipset
    Link Speed: 6 Gigabit
    Negotiated Link Speed: 3 Gigabit

    Can you the SM256GB SSD owners tell me there Negotiated Link Speed?

    Also, how much of a difference is the Toshiba drive not having the NCQ going to make?

    Best,

    Desmo
