    Drive 1, -
    Intel X25-M Mainstream SSDSA2MH160G2R5 2.5" 160GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (449$)

    Drive 2, - SSD
    Intel X25-M Mainstream SSDSA2M160G2XXX 2.5" 160GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - OEM 449$ regular price (429$ sale price)

    Which would be better in my i5 Mbp.

    It's the same thing, one just comes in a retail box, the other comes in bubble wrap and a generic cardboard box.

    Get the cheaper one. Just to let you know, you should hunt around on amazon for this drive. I have seen it being sold there for as cheap as 359 USD + about $10 for shipping. This was the retail version. Since Amazon is considered an authorized retailer, you shouldn't have any problems with warranty claims either.

    Good Luck!
