    I have been looking at SSDs for my 17" 2010 MBP for a while. I got good advice on this forum a few months ago, but didn't pull the trigger, so am starting a new thread.

    I am trying to decide whether to get a SATAIII SSD in anticipation of getting a new MBP at the next refresh -- don't know if thats really a good idea, so looking for advice on that.

    Also, trying to decide on an actual drive. Looking in the 200-300gb range.

    Here are some options

    http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Solid...2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1300747969&sr=1-2

    all of these are less than 500. I like the ocz because i think it has the recommended sandforce controller, but it is not sata3. so it will be fine for my current mbp but not for any future one I might buy...

    A SATAII SSD would work fine with a newer model, it just wouldn't be able to take advantage of the faster interface, so you would get the same speeds as you would in your current computer.

    right of course, but if I got a new MBP (at least 6 months away) I would probably want a SATA3 ssd to get all the benefit. but should I even worry about it? That ocz is $380, which seems to be a good value...
