    Are these good s SSD's in terms of price to performance and require little updating?

    I am thinking of getting one for my 2010 Mini for boot only and another two one each for two 13" MBP's mine and my sons.

    Any advice would help or unless someone can suggest a better one but from what I read out of the box the Intel's are good in Macs

    I have the 120GB in my Macbook Pro and it's pretty speedy! They're not the fastest SSDs out there, but they're reported to be relatively more reliable than other SSD options. However, when I was researching whether to get the 120 or 160GB version, it seemed like more people reported having significant problems with the 160.

    Edit: To give you some figures from my MBP, Snow Leopard boots in about 8-10 seconds w/ about 10 different startup apps (Swallow, Reeder, Quicksilver, Dropbox, Twitter app), Photoshop and Illustrator CS5 cold boot w/in 7-8 seconds (3 seconds warm).
