    its amazing: load times are fast; this thing is sooo quite, and i didn't think it was noisy before; it runs a tad bit cooler; this may be because of the complete format and re-installation of Lion, but since i ran this thing my FPS in WoW is very high (starts at about 200 FPS--assuming a fluke--but settles down to around 80 on high, and 40 on ultra.) Best upgrade you can do to a computer hands down. Thanks to everyone answering my questions the last couple days.

    So did they ever solve the problems that the 2011 17" MBPs were having in not getting read, write speeds with the SATA 3GB/s?

    I think the 17" has two 6gb/s SATA slots.

    I'm hopping tomorrow I can install my M4 128gb in my 2010 13" MBP. it will be a major upgrade for me, since with the M4 will be a Samsung M8 1TB for data and 8Gb of RAM from Crucial. I'm only waiting for the Samsung drive to arrive, and then I'm good to go:D
