I'm getting a high-end MBP 15'' 2.2ghz. My question is, shall i get the apple SSD or a 3rd party? From what I've read, an apple optimized SSD is just far more reliable due to the firmware etc. and the fact I'm covered for 3 years under Apple's warantee. I don't mind paying for the 128GB because its very cheap for the upgrade. 256GB is ridiculous though. However, 128GB simply isn't enough harddrive space. I do have a gaming PC with 2 1TB drives which I guess could store most of my stuff. Any other suggestions? I was deliberating an external harddrive. Are these decent speed-wise to interact with the SSD or is it going to be a bad idea? I'm coming from a 5400RPM harddrive in a 2-3 year old gaming desktop PC. The laptop will be used for music/poker/photos (maybe)/word processing/movies/gaming (maybe) etc.
