    I'm sorry if this has already been posted (can a mod close this if it has been?) but I read on 9to5mac this:

    http://9to5mac.com/2011/08/10/samsu...-6gbps-sata-3-500mbs-reads-and-350mbs-writes/

    Basically Samsung has updated the SSD drives the Air uses to full 6GB sata 3 with 500mbs read and 350mbs write. :)
    They are also going to be offered with up to 512GB of storage! I can see the next MacBook Pro using these as standard or a BTO? IMO they will be enough?

    The model number is the Samsung PM830.

    Samsung's press release:

    As a standard in the next MacBook Pro, not a chance.

    WAY too expensive and the fact that (cheap) HDD's are more than acceptable for 90% of it's customers.

    SSD's are nice, mine sure is! But they are still too new and still too expensive to become the norm.

    Still this is progress and can only help to drive down prices and improve adaptability which is a big plus for everyone.

    Why not as standard? As I stated it's just the next version of what Apple already install, as standard, in the MacBook Air.
