    Hi,
    At some point over the summer i'm looking to completely renew my hard drives. I will hopefully be buying 3/4 external drives (All G-Tech - 2 x 2 or 3TB drives for time machine and general storage, 1 x 500GB firewire 800 portable drive as my audio drive for Logic Pro, and possibly 1 x 500GB portable drive for itunes and movies on the go).

    I am also tempted by SSD drives. I've been looking for a while but i've always thought that it wouldn't be very good because i wouldn't have the storage. I have a 320GB 5400rpm stock drive now, and to get 300GB+ in an SSD is very expensive.
    However, i recently noticed that a lot of files on my mac, i don't actually need on my internal hard drive, and after moving a lot of stuff off it, I could quite easily get by with 240GB/256GB drive.

    I am wondering if anyone has had experience with an SSD in this model macbook pro, good or bad, I want to know it all. And if a drive could be suggested to me that would be very helpful. I have been looking at the OCZ Vertex 2E 240GB SATA II drive (around £309), and it looks very good on paper, but does it perform how it should?

    Any help on this topic would be very much appreciated,

    **Another question that just came to mind - I'm going to be replacing my time machine drive as mentioned earlier. Can i migrate my old time machine drive to the new one?

    Thanks again
