    wow, I'm sure you can but you're looking at enterprise level kit there (and enterprise level cost!) If you find it you're going to have to sell a kidney to put a deposit down

    I couldn't see a price.

    Probably too big to fit on the screen.

    Enterprise drives are actually usually pretty small (and SCSI), they just have a bunch of them to get the capacity they need.

    I'd buy a new computer or five instead of such a large capacity SSD.

    It would be sxtremely stupid to spend 1500$ on a SSD, the performance gains are not worth it. I suggest you go the Optibay + SSD route.

    ^^This. I don't know if OP realizes that large amounts of media are just fine on a HDD and don't need to be on an SSD.

    If you have the money, there's no reason not to get some monster SSD in the 1TB range. Hell, even put 2 huge SSDs in a RAID 0 with a opti-bay data doubler.

    Dude, this thing is gonna cost a hell lot. It's not even below a dollar per GB yet, although the price has gone down significantly since 2009

    Don't shoot down his dream. If the man wants that SSD and can afford it, why not? Enjoy your spoils :)

    I'd suggest an optibay or external hard drive or waiting until a more reputable brand comes out with a drive that size. Intel has a 600GB model, and it's considerably faster than that 800GB.

    MemoRight, is a premier SSD manufacturer that has been around since day one. The reason that some people are not aware of them is due to their high quality, fast, and pricey drives. They don't spend a lot on marketing, but rely on their website and word of mouth and have been extremely successful.

    I installed a MemoRight in my work issued HP EliteBook 8740w Mobile Workstation, and it's been extremely fast and reliable.

    However at the end of the day, while the HP is great for work, I prefer my 2010 BTO MBP for all around use.

    2.5in 750GB+ SSD is a bit of a stretch, especially for $1,500

    As of now, your best bet is Intel 320 600GB SSD. That ought to run you $1,100-1,300.
