    Hello, world. I am a long-time Mac user but I'm very new to SSD's. I know all about them and what not, but I need help purchasing my first one. I'm looking to upgrade my late-2009 macbook (yes, the white one). I am the kind of person that does EXTENSIVE research to find the best product, with the best features, at the best price. I need at least 120 gigs and don't want to spend more that $150. As of right now I have narrowed it down to 2 options. I was wondering if somebody could tell me which is better or if you know of one that's better a better choice than both. Any help would be appreciated!!! :D

    My options:

    SanDisk:

    Intel:

    Thanks!!!

    Either is fine. SSD is prety much impossible to malfunction. I would get Intel.

    More importantly is to maximize the RAM.

    Yeah, I'm definitely going with Intel. And I've already upgraded from 2gb of stock ram to 8gigs. My computer screams, I'm just looking for the extra boost that you get from an SSD :)
