    I'd love to get an SSD drive if I were to buy a new MBP. However, I need to use bootcamp. Are there any drives out there that work with Bootcamp now? I heard it used to have problems....


    Thanks!

    I think the problem is not Bootcamp or OS X, but Windows Vista itself. I did a quick google search and it seems Vista (maybe even XP aswell) is not designed to work efficiently on SSDs.


    SSDs are not too common, so it may be a while before Windows can run smoothly on them. I'd guess Apple developed OS X to run on them in new macs



    Is Solid State worth the cost? I looked them up quickly and I got the impression that they are stronger, more durable to impact, but they don't last as long. They cannot be written to or read from as much as a regular HDD.
