    Hey guys,

    Considering buying the new 2.7Ghz i7 13 and putting an SSD in it. Anyone tried it? And if so, how is the performance?

    Don't know about the recent macbook pro's but i have the last gen 2.66ghz i7 and i had a 500gb 5400rpm hdd and it REALLY slowed down recently, were talking 4 minute boot times. So i bought myself an OCZ 240gb agility 2 SSD and lemme tell you, EPIC difference. Full bootup with everything loaded takes about 25 seconds... safari opens in half a second, same with itunes, everything is amazing, huge difference! However, i thought that if i removed the spinning hard drive that my battery life would increase quite a bit, well it didn't really, tad bit better, was at about 5 hours now i'm getting almost 6.5.

    I ordered those specs from Apple, so we shall see how it performs.

    That's a 30% increase, keep in mind that there are plenty of other power-hungry components in there: cpu, gpu & display, wifi, etc..
