    I just purchase an Intel 320 SSD and I just found out that the new Macbook Pro 2011 has 6gbit or has it?

    Did they really include the new chipset when they released the MBP in early 2011?

    Yes, the 2011 MBPs have the S-ATA 6.0Gbps interface.

    Your laptop came with a SATA II HDD (3 gbit) connected to a SATA III (6 gbit) port. What you can do is return your Intel 320 for a 510 or ... then throw the HDD to your optical bay under the SATA II connection and have the new SSD on the SATA III. Basically you have 1 port of each.

    No, you made the right choice and I would stick with it. Most people who got a SATA 3 drive have been having issues with it. Intel 320 is the safe choice. It's also what I'm going to be replacing my Micron c400 with.

    Of course, if you're in the market for a 512GB SSD (Micron c400), let me know. =)

    kappa,

    Why are you getting rid of the Micron? I have the M4 512GB in my Macbook pro at 6 Gbs and it's working great. Had to update to the latest firmware (0002) though.
