    I got 15" and replace the stock HDD with Intel X25-M G2 SDD.

    In Win7, I run HD tune, I got max read speed 160-170M, far from the 230M spec. Write speed was fine, actually max at about 100M, better than spec 70M.

    Is there a Mac version HDD benchmark tool to try? How is your figure?

    To have a look at the actual controller interface, go to System Profiler > Hardware > Serial-ATA.

    To benchmark your SSD speed, download AJA System Test.

    This is from system profile:

    Link Speed: 3 Gigabit
    Negotiated Link Speed: 3 Gigabit
    Description: AHCI Version 1.30 Supported

    So numbers looks fine, I will try the tool.

    160 MB/sec sounds a bit disappointing. Let us know.

    Read 220M in OSX, write 90M!

    Weird though in Win 7, it's 160-170M, bootcamp driver is the one to blame I guess?
