    I'm ready to pull the trigger on a SSD upgrade for my MB 2,1 Late-2006 2GHz c2d. I don't want to spend more than $150 so I can deal with 40-60Gigs.

    I've narrowed it down to two drives:

    1) The OCZ 60GB Agility Series OCZSSD2-1AGT60G (cost $150)

    OR

    2) Intel Mainstream X25-V 40GB (cost $109)


    I'm stuck. Help me decide. Thoughts:confused:

    I prefer OCZ, but both are solid drives. OCZ has garbage collection built into the latest firmware, so you don't have to blank it every now and again to keep it running at its best, but I'm pretty convinced future snow leopard updates will include a TRIM like function in disc utility...

    The 40GB Intels are slower than the 80/160 GB ones.
