    Hello All,


    1st time poster here, been reading various posts on this board for the last 6 months, re. SSD drives.

    However, one question I don't remember being answered is as follows......

    In terms of launching applications, booting up, shutting down, will I see any noticeable difference in opting for the Apple SSD as against the Intel X25-M?

    I intend to pull the trigger tonight and purchase the 13" 2.4 Macbook Pro, so any replies would be greatly appreciated.


    Regards :)

    In benchmarks, the Intel is still better with small random read/write, but the Apple drive wins with sequential or large read/writes. Both are pretty good at not degrading more than 15% over time. I doubt anyone could tell much difference in basic notebook productivity tasks. Personally, I got the x25 160GB but it was before I knew that Apple had upgraded their SSDs in the new models, so in hindsight I would have rather had the cheaper Apple drive, the warranty it comes with, and $170 to spend towards more RAM. I still love the x25 though so I'm not really that sad.

    Toshiba HG2, only available to OEMs and apparently a relatively recent design.
