Has anyone here upgraded from HDD to an SSD direct from Apple? What's the opinion on the Apple SSDs quality compared to third-party ones? Hi, I'm looking into buying a non-retina macbook pro and want to upgrade the HDD to an SSD. The question I have is if I should do this via Apple directly, or do it myself using a third-party one. Now, the question isn't related to money (I know it's more expensive via Apple), but more regarding quality and speed. If the speed of an Apple SSD and a third-party one, like for example a Samsung, were the same, I would rather upgrade via Apple than do it myself. The reason I want to get a non retina MBP is because I like the 16:10 ratio, and I prefer the bulkiness of the chassis when typing. I also make use of the Super Drive, and I like the dedicated on/off button. This is why I can't, at this moment, consider the macbook air or the retina one. Thank you all in advance for any advice you can provide.
