Just purchased a new 13 MacBook Pro with 4GB of Ram and the 2.53GHz Processor with Snow Leopard. Also purchased the Runcore Pro IV 256GB SSD
*note photo is 64GB but looks the sames as 256GB
(after reading this review http://blogs.zdnet.com/Apple/?p=3811 ) after receiving the MacBook Pro I did some basic speed tests before and after install. It came with a kit that has a case so you simply clone your HD then swap them out then use your HD as an external USB drive pretty slick.

Bottom line this is the fastest MacBook I have ever seen and I love it. Especially rendering video..wow what a difference. See my crude speed test in a video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwF0b3vRuFQ

i hope you cure cancer with the extra 20 seconds of your life you will have by booting with this insanely expensive ssd


im not impressed in the least really, in fact your video makes me pretty confident that I won't get an ssd any time soon.

Glad you're happy! After buying my MBA with SSD I can never go back. It just makes a great experience better.

...SSD's are still too new tech, the price per GB isn't worth it yet = give it a year or two before you'll really see prices and tech worth investing your hard earned $$ on...

Sure seems like spam. Weird comments on the video, too.

Protip: If you're going to make fake usernames to comment in your own videos, make sure you don't put "Max" in all three.

Problem is, this whole thread is a big commercial for that drive, which also seems to be a slow drive, so I think it's quite misleading for people who do not know much about SSDs stating that 34 seconds is some insane speed.

Well, after further review, I'm less inclined to think it's spam. I think he's just really excited and enthusiastic about something cool he has. Look at his YouTube video uploads -- they're varied and mostly on other unrelated things.

Good deal, man. I see you took the advice and left "Max" out of this username! :D

Seriously though, it's still pretty suspicious that he signed up just to post a link to his Youtube videos and rave about the performance on an under-performing product.

And that 1 of only 3 comments to his Youtube video was made by someone with a similar username, talking about the release date of the chip.

Sure smells like a salty, chopped and formed meat product.

Glad you're happy. I'm thinking of getting myself an X-25 when the prices go down:). Sorry they're so many haters that assume bad faith...

The 34 second boot was the hard drive control. Then he clones and installs the SSD and does it again, where it (the SSD) boots in 15 seconds.

Again 34 seconds was the old style platter hard drive, 15 seconds was the SSD.

It does show the improved writes, and it does show your relative performance to what you have before.
Well no specifics since you can double your score on some of the tests if you just run the test again.

SPAM???? Wow you guys are tough

Yeap seem like spam to me as well. This thread should be locked.
This was my first....and most likely last post in Macrumors jut wanted to share my excitement with my Mac, I am Windows convert and I'm really enjoying the Mac , but I am obviously not qualified to post here. I posted the video because I could not find a video that has used the runcore in a macbook pro.
Anyway learned my lesson, I really don't have time to analyze things at the depth that many of you do ("the word max in each video comment" WTF) so believe what you want.
