Never had an SSD before and I'm thinking of getting one when I upgrade my MBP. I can't deal with the smaller capacities so I'll have to go for one of the big expensive ones. My MBP is my main machine and I like to take as much with me when I'm on the go. Question is do I upgrade with Apple or get a 3rd party SSD? I get a discount on Apple stuff through my employer so upgrading to a 512GB SSD is around ~$1100 instead of the regular $1300 Apple charges. Given that, what would you do? Is the Apple SSD worth it? I read lots of people saying it's "reliable but not fast". Do I get the base unit and upgrade my drive separately? I'd love to hear your opinions. Quick list of general uses: Safari, Elgato EyeTV, VMWare, XCode, Eclipse, iLife, occasionally Photoshop and eventually Starcraft 2.
