    Anyone using an SSD in a recent MBP 13?

    For basic stuff, web, email, etc, does it run pretty much cool and silent or do you get heat and fan noise?

    Deciding between a 13 Pro or Air,
    like the price and specs on the pro,
    but if the fans run even with basic tasks the Air might be best...

    The hard drive is one of the coolest parts on the system actually. What will cause the fans to spin up is your CPU usage. At least that's what happens to me. When running basic tasks my fans keep the 2k RPM minimum speed. I can't hear them at all.

    It is quiet and cool with a SSD until you open up youtube,***********,Skype Video/Audio call or a big Java platform like Etrade.;) Otherwise it will run quietly and cool.
