This post is mainly for Scottsdale but if others are knowledgable (actually own the hardware) or can contribute I'd welcome input. I've seen some posts concerning the runcore ssd upgrade and have heard that the performance is decent (to put it lightly). I've also heard that Apple has issued various patches dealing with ssd drivers which have increased their speed. How would a runcore fair against a current gen Apple ssd? Is the performance gain worth the $447 pricetag? I'm wondering if any more data has become available since the last posts I read Thanks for your input!
