    Hello, I'm a Graphic Design major. And I've been thinking about buying a new 17' MBP but I have a question concerning Hard Drive.

    I've been following the forums and the "clicking and beeping" HDD issue caught my attention. I didn't want to go through all that and so I came to the conclusion of upgrading to SSD.

    My question is if any of you know the make and model of the 128gb/256gb SSD.
    And if any of you have bought the a SSD through Apple and have experienced any problems with it?

    My major is Graphic Design and so I'm going to be using a lot of PS AI and InDesign. Will the SSD have any complications in using these programs?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've got a 17" MBP with a non-standard Intel SSD at 80gb so this is really just a partial answer. I do a lot of Final Cut and photoshop on it and it's wonderful - quick start-up and very responsive.

    i do have a 128GB corsair SSD inside my 17" MBP. it's really great, and i use AI and PS alot, working with 3000px images and it's just fine.
