    I bought an MBP 13" 2.53 with 160GB HDD... I'm spoiled from my SSD MBA and so decided to buy an SSD for the MBP...

    I looked at what apple is offering (I believe Toshiba) and wasn't too impressed. I finally decided to pull the trigger on the intel X25-M 160GB SSD and was wondering if I need any special tools (i.e. tray unit) or will it fit exactly as the 2.5" HDD?

    also, can anyone confirm given the higher price of the intel X25-M SSD that the price is indeed worth it?

    thanks

    I thought 250GB HDD was standard in that model, no?

    first ssd's had no problem and sure intel will fix the new generation ..

    just buying intel means no worry.
