For awhile now samsung has been working on "teh fastest ssd ever omgz nd in liek 256gb!!11!!" although its been "on its way" since november. Seeing the 17in mbp with a 256gb ssd and given apple's history with samsung could this be that new ssd? Samsung does currently manufacture all the apple ssd's right? I ask this because I plan on getting a 17 mbp and $900 is a lot for a hard drive. If it is this new samsung one, I'll dish out the cash. If not I'll just take the standard HDD and use the money to buy that new samsung one when its released to the public (supposed to be by the end of this month). Everything seems to point at the new samsung drive to be in the mbp (release date, etc.) but it would be nice to see some absolute proof.
