    So everyone, I got my mbp in 9/10; 15 inch, i7 duo core with 250SSD, and 8GBS Ram (latter two were after market from Crucial). I thought that machine was quick

    THEN decided to upgrade to 2011 MBP 15 inc i7 quad core with 480 SSD and 8GBs (SSD from OWC) -- this thing smokes everything

    Running this on the 27 inch LED cinema; doing CS5, and all sorts of other software at once -- no sweat

    installing the 64bit version of Win 7 on the parallels tomorrow.

    Best Laptop I have owned (and I have owned custom Voodoo Pc laptops)

    and I am not an apple homer at all.

    There is only one option you have with the 2.2 and 2.3 and it's the same.

    raid 0 twin SSDs and you might be able to claim title to the world's fastest Macbook Pro.

    might actually slow it down b\c from what I hear, the hd sata port is sata III and the superdrive port is sata II. The newest ssds these days can max out sata III, so sata II would be a bottleneck.

    I want to bookmark this thread so we can all laugh at ourselves in five years' time.

    Just wait until this is available. This thing will be blindingly fast over Thunderbolt; I just hope we can boot from it (unknown at this point).
