    I'm thinking of getting the recently released macbook with 8gb ram and a SSD. I will install the ssd myself if possible. Has anyone any helpful info on whether this is possible and if so, which SSD to go for.

    My primary uses are Lightroom, FCP and PS CS5. I guess this is a little underpowered for me but to get the 15" i7 pimped to the correct spec will just break me.

    Intel or OCZ, they are the best ones available IMO. Kingston is also okay and so is OWC

    I have a couple of intels in raid in my macpro. had no problems with them. I was just wondering if anyone knew of a specific drive that fits and works well for the new macbook?

    All Intel SSDs work fine (2.5"), so does OCZs and OWCs. I would get from one of them, 100% compatibility and great disks anyway
