I'm going to get a new MBP 15 with an SSD. Currently running: 2.16 GIGA hertz Core Deuce, 1GB RAM (OEM!), light scratches to screen, tricked out with OSX 10.4.11!!! While I don't need the world in a manila envelope, I want a computer that will handle all of my needs for years to come. I do heavy photo-editing, but aside from that am a pretty basic user - mostly music editing/internet/video/word processing (no gaming, 3D pron, or 3D pron gaming). The Apple SSD options have gotten more competitive, but this option still seems far better: OWC 240GB Mercury Extreme Pro SSD $519.00 Shipped - $31.00 rebate for 500GB 5400 rpm HDD =$488.00 vs. MAC 256GB SSD built in = $600.00 4 questions: 1. Is this the best upgrade (and best brand for the money SSD) a "typical" user can make? I'm planning to upgrade to 8GB RAM, but would like to get an SSD immediately. 2. Should I keep the HDD and run this set-up: OWC 240 SSD Internal + 500 GB HDD external drive for $539? 3. If I replace my HDD with an SSD, do I really need disk management software? 4. Critique my tentative new MBP: 15" 2.0GHz Quad i7, 4 GB RAM, 240GB OWC SSD, High-Res Anti Glare Screen Thanks for any info/help!
