is there support for this?
I too have wondered this.
considering the SB chipset problems, i would imagine (at least the initial ones) are on the sataIII ports for both the optical and hdd - which would be great news for future upgrades & optibay.
i find it interesting they dont mention it on the specs although the HDD inside the machine is prob sata II (which would be a reason they dont mention it)
can you tell from system profile what ports are connected to the chip ?
I just ordered my 15" but am wondering the same thing. I guess I'll report bak when I find out
dunno but i care about this because of upgrade to Vertex 3 SSD in future, which would be awesome if it is possible. I am new to the mac, this will be my first.
but Cougar Point supports two SATA III ports, but who knows what apple used.
this is what i have been throwing a wobbly about
so i asked apple on 'live chat' and they initially said yes.. but after 30 min wait as they where making sure.. and the repetitive "thanks for you patience", and "just a moment, please" - they asked me why
so i said as i wanted to know in terms of future upgradeability to the OWC sata 3 with 6gb/s
i referenced this
she then 'hung-up' and the chat ended
that since certain early version of SB chips will have faulty sata 3, and only sata 2 ports will be working - whether they will use these chips with the faults and we risk upgrading at our own peril (back to pc days) or apple threw in their weight and demanded only full functioning well tested chipsets without the flaw
i will wait until more confirmation and info has been documented
my macbook pro with 3yrs applecare i purchased 6 wks ago can be resold at 90% value i paid.. from similar listing e-bay
<deep breath> excited re new macbook refresh
? quadcore versions as used in 15" appears no affected
again not enough info and apple is keeping stum about this
mmm.. i'm a little apprhensive to jump in
i think only SATA 2 ports were affected. and i guess apple didnt use affected chips. so if HDD is connected to SATA III i am good
there is a post in this thread saying that SATA III is supported
