    After viewing a comparison chart between the current SSDs on the market, and deeply considering buying a MacBook Pro, I have decided to get one in an effort to speed up my design workflow. The one thing that still concerns me though is that there are some 128gb SSDs that show VERY low read/write times and some that display read/write times that are double, or even quadruple, that of others.

    My question is, to anyone who got a 128gb SSD in their MacBook Pro at purchase, can you please tell me the model number that it displays in the System Profiler? Thanks in advance, I truly appreciate the help, and I also apologize if this has been posted before, I tried a simple Google search with no positive results.

    Samsung.

    256 GB or 128 GB read is max at 240 and a 128 MB cache. Do not know write.

    While Samsung is the manufacturer of the stock 128GB SSD, I thought Toshiba was the maker of the 256GB version?? :confused:

    IIRC the 128gb is a Samsung. It is a decent SSD, by no means the best on the market.

    Buy a SSD separately.
