I thought it would be lots of fun to take my two 64GB Crucial M225 Solid-State Drives and install them both in my 13'' MacBook Pro in a RAID 0 (striped) configuration. As we all know the SSDs are fast already, but to have them work in paralell as one larger 128GB SSD would deliver amazing speed. A quick purchase of a bay to mount the drive where the optical SuperDrive previously was allowed for easy install of both SSDs internally. The Snow Leopard installer let me set up a raid then install the system to it. Only a whopping 10 minutes later it was up and running. Let's see some results! XBench 2.0's results: Sequential: Uncached write: 252.29 MB/sec (4K blocks) Uncached write: 310.1 MB/sec (256K blocks) Uncached read: 55.31 MB/sec (4K blocks) Uncached read: 342.1 MB/sec (256K blocks) Random: Uncached Write: 25.7 MB/sec (4K blocks) Uncached write: 230.7 MB/sec (256K blocks) Uncached read: 26.5 MB/sec (4K blocks) Uncached erad: 210.24 MB/sec (256K blocks) It boots in a matter of seconds, usually under ten! Has anyone else delighted themselves in solid state bliss and has good reports? Bad reports? Here's a video by the way of opening every single program on the laptop at once and seeing the load times or lack thereof: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bS9FIj5JxgE I wonder if I can sell this laptop and buy myself any kind of 15" with a 9600GT... even the first-gen one would do.
