    Hey guys, I've been a long time lurker on this forum, but I had a question so I decided to join. I've got a MacBook Pro running 10.6.4 with 4GB RAM, 2.4GHz Core2Duo CPU and a 5400rpm 250GB 8MB cache hard drive.

    Does this Xbench look normal?
    Also, I've been looking into getting a new hard drive or a small sized SSD. On my current hard drive I get a max of ~80MB/s when accessing it, if I upgraded to a 7200rpm drive, what MB/s could I get? also how many MB/s on an SSD?

    Thanks!

    Awesome! Looks like the 7200rpm offers an additional ~30MB/s speed. I wonder what a low ends SSD can offer?

    keep in mind his drive is also a higher density (500GB instead of 250GB) which also increases speed.

    A bigger drive increases speed? I didn't know that.
    Will a 12.5mm drive instead of 9.5mm fit in my macbook pro?

    yes.
    there is a 1TB 12.5mm drive out there that you can fit in, even though its 5200rpm its faster then my drive.


    ha ha ha :p
