    Hi

    I want to order a new macbook i7 in a few days the high-res! I just wondered is the 128gb SSD a wise choice to go for over the 7200rpm drive? and does it justify the price for performance and capacity loss ratio?


    Thanks guys!

    Yes. It's probably the only thing it out performs (ie: SSD > Hard Drive)

    Define not very good...?

    I have used every SSD that a Mac comes with and you are crazy if you think the stock SSDs aren't "very good". The current Toshiba drives are very fast and have far better writes than the Intel drives and can keep up in reads.

    There are many great SSDs on the market, not just Intel or OCZ. SuperTalent and Toshiba make very good SSDs and believe it or not, the SuperTalent UltraDrive ME is the base for the OCZ Vertex....

    Any Apple SSD will do great! Don't let this paintballswimgu tell you otherwise...

    I agree with this fellah, everyone is so stuck in the stereotype of how 'Apple's Stock SSD's Suck' that they forget to realise that the recent SSD change to Toshiba ridicules it.

    Yeah Toshiba isn't the best, but it blows intel and other manufacturers out of the water in its performance per watt. There's a graph around here somewhere....

    Yup, there's a current thread on it!

    Not sure what you mean here. Both drives are based on the Indilinx controller, but that's not the same as saying the OCZ vertex is based on the ST UDME

    The only SSD I know of with the Toshiba controller is the Kingston SSDNow V+
