    So I have both the 11" macbook air and the 13" macbook air and I use them for traveling. Its hard to decide which one to take with me but I love them both. They are fast, small and the screen is terrrific, I love them but I need a horsepower machine also for work so I decided to replace my aging core 2 duo 2.66ghz 15" macbook pro with a new Sandy bridge model. Picked on up from the apple store. 2.3ghz high rez anti glare and love it but one thing.

    THAT FREAKING SPINNING HARD DRIVE. I can hear it. Its not loud by mechanical hard drive standards but I can hear it. I am so used to the sound of my Macbook Airs (SILENT) that now having a spinning hard drive is driving me nuts. So I am taking it back and just placed an order for the same model at apple online only this time I added the 512gb apple SSD for $990. Great deal by 512gb SSD standards but still a chunk of change. These airs have spoiled me. The thought of using a spinning hard drive ever makes me want to pull my hair out.

    Well now I just have to wait for it to be shipped. I am sure it will scream, (SILENTLY). LOL.

    Why do you need a 512GB? If an Air fits you then why not get a 120 or a 240?

    Some people just have to carry 10000000 songs with them all the times. They don't listen to everything, but they just cannot give them up.

    Just like they don't want to organize their rooms. Same thing here. They don't want to get rid of any music. Some of them don't even know what music they have. They just want to carry them all.

    Well, glad it costs you. You deserve it.

    I have Terabytes of data I manipulate, plus I have 500GB of music. LOL.

    One was for my wife but she has been using the 15" more.

    And they're probably a lot cheaper than $990 :)

    yeah not to sound like a jealous jerk or anything(which I am, by the way), but this thread just sounds like you talking about how you can afford 3.5 macbooks. Must be nice.

    Thanks to this thread, whenever I see "BTO SDD" I'm going to think it's a medical condition.

    He needs a 17" mbp, and a Mac Pro on wheels with battery pack too.

    Actually for the 512GB SSD's its a rather good price, OWC wants over $1,500

    Since it would take 10 years to listen to 500GB of music my 256GB drive is more than enough.

    Purchased 2TB WD elements external HD for $70 on black Friday since my condition (cheapness) prevents me from spending $990
