Love the stock 128GB SSD in my MBP 8,2... Plenty fast for me. Snow Leopard OS, Home folder and Win7 VM is on the SSD, but I've only got 13GB left, and would like some breathing room. (I have music/movies/photos on the 750GB HDD in the optibay.) I don't plan on upgrading to Lion until I get a bigger SSD. (Not sure if Lion takes up more or less space than SL, but figure the install will go more smoothly if there's more free space to work with.) So, would you suggest just going with an Apple 256GB SSD? (Can one even get these aftermarket? Not even sure what the cost would be... Apple store only?) I can install it myself, so I don't NEED Apple to do it. But it might be the case where you can only get it if Apple installs it at the store. Or would you go with a third-party SSD? The new SATAIII OWC unit that was just announced is $600, which seems a tad pricey. But it's 6gbs, and has garbage-collection stuff, which I understand is good. (vs. TRIM on the stock drive.) I'm really happy with the stock SSD, and I love that I've never had an issue with compatibility; I don't NEED a performance upgrade, just more space.
