    Just got 8GB RAM and thinking about replacing the OEM :apple: drive will it be noticeably faster?

    Thx

    I had the XT for a while after it first came out. As far as boot times and app launch times it wasn't much slower, if not just as fast, than my Intel 320 SSD.

    Of course write speeds won't be as fast. They're even kind of slow compared to other 7200 RPM HDDs. The drive is worth every penny though, I definitely recommend it.
