    The only problem is the cost of the drives. They do make 2.5" SATA ones.

    No Luck Here

    I tried a Patriot SSD v2 in my 2GHz MacBook Core Duo (MA255LL/A). The OS 10.4 installer and its Disk Utility could not see the SSD.
    I'm not sure if the problem is the OS (is 10.5 needed?) or my old model of MacBook.
    I used my OS 10.5 Mac Pro to successfully format & install OS 10.4 on the SSD, but my MacBook boot picker still cannot see it.
