    I just purchased a 128 gig Solid State Drive at frys the other day $299. I read a bunch of reviews on SSDs but never pulled the trigger because of the cost.

    If anyone is on the fence go out and buy one today, the speed difference is huge. My 17 MBP is wicked fast now! Bootup times are 1-3x faster. Applications load in a flash, no more spinning beach ball. I hit pages and shazam, it's open and ready.

    Anyhow, installation was a breeze, cloned drive, had to remove a bunch of stuff because i downgraded from a 500 internal to a ssd. Im not looking at replacing my SuperDrive with a regular HD to reclaim the space, ill keep music, videos and such on that.

    So, it's a good buy. Just wonder what upgrading to 8 gigs of ram will do for me now. I'll let you all know next month.

    8 Gb best quality ram would be perfect.
    OWC comes to mind.

    I might go the SSD route myself for the 3 month old MBP13.
    OWC claims some good stuff with theirs.
