    I payed $150 for a new 64gb Patriot ssd, I know what your thinking "64gb is way too small" your right it is but for my use it seems to work out fine. I have a Seagate 1.5tb 7200 external so thats were I have my games and movies.It installed smoothly on Leopard and partitioned well under bootcamp and XP. It takes about 23 secs to boot up Leopard and about 30 secs for xp. I ran Xbench test and it scored a whopping 59.83!!!. It is definitely faster than my previous 320gb 7200 so why does it score sooo lowww??? Thank you in advanced.

    The reason why your SSD is noticeably faster is not because of read/write time, but access time. Unfortunately, xbench doesn't display this number. If you use a program like HDTune to compare a normal HDD vs SSD, you'd see that this number is much lower when using an SSD, which leads to faster boot up/opening programs, etc.

    Mac Pro = workstation; MacBook Pro = laptop. There's a huge difference.
