Been waiting for SSD costs to get down to $1/GB. It ain't happening anytime soon. Scoured the forums. Have Crucial's SSD problems been rectified with their current firmware? (version 9 I believe). SATA III working ok on on early 2011's? Will I still need the Trim hack with Lion? It gets good reviews but there seems to be a lot of folks that get bad ones. I'm "this close" to ordering the 512GB model. $700 is "acceptable" for me (but not without a little grumbling).
