    I've heard of people plugging in a SSD in their ExpressCard slot on their MBP, installing OS X on it and booting from it.

    I'm kind of confused though -- is this for the new MacBook Pros? Or will it also work on the old late model 2008 Unibody MacBook Pros?

    I have the late 2008 Unibody 15" MacBook Pro. I was thinking about getting this card here

    I think the answer is yes and that someone has described it here before.

    The late 2008 model is the last 15" MBP to have an ExpressCard slot.

    Wow. I didn't realize the newer 15" doesn't have a expresscard slot. Haven't been keeping up with hardware revisions.

    Thanks for the replies.

    March 2009 are the last ones. These are the ones to get.
