Just curious as to how the ssd fairs against the 4200rpm model... I've experienced the 1.6ghz/80gb model and the fan noise is the only reason that I returned it.. How are your fan speeds?? I know the 4200rpm especially at 1.8" is the huge bottleneck so maybe with an ssd drive the whole experience is much much different. All I know is that on my samsung ssd drive in my mbp it is faster than my 7200rpm hitachi travelstar 7k200 and even fast as my raptor drive. Basically the ssd is the speed of my raptor.
