Do the 128Gb MBP SSDs fail a lot?

If you are getting one this seems irrelevant. Most people seem to be under the impression that the SSD's fail less then ATA drives, as to whether that is true or noticeably different is still up for discussion. Given the lack of moving parts, it seems rather logical.

Side-bar: Can we please for the love of gawd have a "mrsir2009 is buying a MacBook Pro thread?"

For example this is your sixth thread about your new MacBook Pro:
What is this MBP capable of?
When will MBP SSD prices come down?
How will this 15" MBP preform
Battery life of a 15" MacBook Pro...?
SSD or ATA in my new MBP?

Any piece of electronics can fail, but I've never spoken to a person whose SSD has failed. They're overall very reliable.

Every mechanical hard drive WILL fail—it's just a matter of when it will happen.

With a solid state drive, there are no moving parts to wear out, and they are designed to last much longer than traditional hard drives.
