First and foremost, I am using a stock MacbookPro 7,1 with 4GB RAM, 2.4Ghz Core2Duo Processor and 250GB 5200rpm hard drive. (if this matters at all!) My first question, should I buy SSDs now or wait? And if wait, how long? I am set on getting a OWC SSDs by the way. Moving on, what I want to do is this: 2 ~40GB Internal SSDs in RAID 0 (removing the Optical Drive and putting in Data Doubler or equivalent.) Put my 250GB HDD in an external FW800 enclosure for Time Machine. Put my optical drive in an external USB enclosure. First, what kind of speeds can I see from the RAID 0 SSDs? Second, if I need to boot from the installation disk, can I still press the "c" key or will I have to do a workaround because the optical drive is external? Lastly, can anyone recommend an economically friendly FW800 enclosure for 2.5" hard drives and a USB enclosure for my optical drive? (I hope both of them can be run off the bus?) Thanks!
