    For your purposes, no difference. Get the cheaper one. I have the m4 512GB too. Thing is a beast. Worth every 736 dollars that I spent months ago! Solid state is the way to go. The experience you will get is just so amazingly awesome!

    What's funny is that the cheaper one includes an adapter bracket, that's the only difference.

    I've also got the 512g M4, and yes - the thing is a beast. :D

    How is the speed and the battery life affected with this drive. I don't really care about short boot times if there aren't other benefits.

    That's what I figured but I just wanted to double check. I'm glad I'm jumped on it. I told myself that I wouldn't buy an SSD unless it was closer to a $1/GB or less than that.

    Just to mess with you, here's another interesting deal. Look at the speeds on that guy! Hahaha! Pair of these 240GB babies in RAID 0 for $480? Whaaaaaa?

    But seriously, I love my M4.

    I've had my sights on an M4 or an 830 for quite some time now. So I'll *hopefully* be content. Haha

    +1 for the Crucial M4 512GB SSD. Put one in my MBP not long ago and love it!
