Hi everyone! I was reading this forum for ages, but this is my first post here. I'm long time Windows only user and now, after 2 years of deciding, I feel ready to purchase my first Apple computer - the new (mid 2009) MacBook Pro (2.53 GHz version) - mostly for graphic design (Adobe CS4 suite) and some extensive photo editing. So far, everything looked great and I was looking forward getting a hassle-free system, where I won't fiddle about system issues like in Windows and concentrate on work. But now I feel a bit stuck: I was planning to replace the stock HD with nice fast SSD drive to help me with my job - I was deciding between the OCZ Vertex 120, Crucial M225 or Intel x25-m (well this one is pretty expensive, so I would rather opt for the Vertex). But than I started to read threads about freezing computers, about spinning beachballs, about updating firmwares, about the possibility I won't be able to install OSX on the new SSD at all (please see here: http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=58184 or in other threads on OCZ forum) - and that's exactly why I want to leave the microsoft world. WTF? There is long thread on Apple Support forum (http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2054387&tstart=0) about the normal SATA2 drives not working properly after the recent EFI 1.7 update - so does it mean it is notr safe to update the MBP drive to something like Seagate Momentus 7200.4 as well? Could I ask very kindly all of you, more experienced: what would you recommend? I've got money on my account and I'm ready to purchase, but I want my new computer run smoothly, hassle-free, without problems - that's what I was told about macs. Thanks much for helpful replies!
