    Both would work but the one for $199 is what I have, the other is 7mm thick, that would work too, but the drives in the Mac are 9mm thick.

    Can't wait to see a 512 GB at this price. Incredible!

    Wonder why it's taking the Samsung 830 so long to drop to these levels? When they do that will be my next purchase.

    Because it's a premium drive and its main competitor is Intel, but Crucial has been kicking their butt as far as sales go.

    This is what I'm waiting for. I know it's going to be a while.

    Perhaps you're right. Guess I just need to be patient and content with my Samsung 470 for a while longer. These deals are getting really hard to resist though. Thanks for the info.

    You have the 470? Just keep it, it's a nice drive.

    If I were you, I would wait a year to see where this SSD business is going. What's great is these SSD manufacturers are competing with Hard Drives...and almost all of them don't make HDs so it's a new market for them.

    I have a reason to believe that this is why Samsung sold it's HD business to Seagate...same with Toshiba.

    SSD is obviously the future.

    Wanted to put the 470 in my iMac which is still running the stock 1TB 7200 rpm drive and the 830 in my MBP. To be honest, the iMac runs pretty fast and smooth and I'm not having and issues with it. Guess I just got a case of SSD fever since upgrading the MBP months ago. I'll probably wait it out a while since the Samsung model is my personal preference.

    Interesting tidbit, didn't know both those companies had sold off their HDD divisions.

    Yeah, I know what you mean about the SSD addiction.

    It's crazy but I keep checking for prices all the time, but I already have an SSD in my MBP :D

    Must be the curious nerd deep down inside. I would like to update my Mac Pro's boot drive to an SSD soon, but I don't see a need for it.

    The samsung 830 is a beauty, for sure.

    Hmm, that's odd. I don't see it now, I'll have to give them a call.

    At the very bottom right corner there is an e-mail signup but it doesn't mention anything about $10. I'll sign up anyway and see what happens.

    Thanks!
