    In my opinion ssd is better. because it's faster. And if you drop your mac, hdd gonna crash, but ssd - not...

    So ssd... i've used INTEL, SAMSUNG and Corsair SSD's... and all of them worked faster than 10000rpm hdd's...

    Samsung's SSDs have dropped in price in recent weeks. Great value for you money. Intel and Corsair is fine too. I know OCZ has a bad rep, but its worked fine for me.
