If your question is specifically about this card, I can't say. But I have a 128GB Corsair P128 in my '09 C2D 13" and all I can say is I HATE using my '10 i5 15" MBP w/ a regular 7200rpm drive. In fact, I now HATE using any computer w/ conventional HD :D That said, 64GB seems kinda tiny. My 128GB isn't exactly roomy but it's enough to get by.

...can you look for a v+ version, how much more would that cost over in your area?

The power draw is much lower and the "up to" speeds for read and write are rated much faster for the "+" version...

Might be worth a look into it... if I got a Kingston SSD, it would be a plus version.

I got my WD scorpio blue SSD (64Gb0 and Intel G2 (80Gb) SSD's for good deals though so I passed on the Kingston model... and if I need more space, I bring one of my 320Gb USB HDD's along for additional data (or my 32Gb flash drive)...

You want the V+ series. I'm using the V+ 128GB on mine. Love it and it has been perfect.

Kingston SSDNow V+ Series SNVP325-S2/128GB

SMART and Trim support too (for when they become available in the next OSX iteration)
