OK, the title is misleading, but I have posted 2 new threads on this topic and so far nobody has reported buying, trying or testing one. The first post on March 1 was called "128GB SSD in 17" MBP" and received 173 views and 0 replies. The second attempt, on March 5, titled "Has anyone bought the 17" MBP with the 128GB solid state drive?" was viewed 240 times and received 7 replies. But none of the replies reported actually buying or testing the product sold by Apple. There were suggestions about putting in my own SSD, and some discussion about Samsung versus Toshiba SSDs, but while the new 17" 256GB SSD is a Toshiba (apparently with disappointing specs), no-one seems to know what make of unit Apple puts into the 128GB. My situation is that I ordered the 17" MBP with matte screen and ATA @7200 drive from a reseller in late January. They still cannot give me a delivery date, and after reading some of the comments about SSD, I decided to cancel my order and wait to see what the 128SSD is like - as supplied by Apple. And I am still impatiently waiting to hear a single report! I don't want to buy one model then change the HD later. My employer will pay for the computer, but after spending that money they certainly wont pay for a change of HD shortly afterwards. Also, I don't think they will stretch to the cost of the 256GB model. So, please, can anyone provide some feedback on their experience with this computer?
