    Hands Down

    Hands down the OWC drives from Macsales, their OWC Mercury line. Several of the Cisco engineers in Minneapolis have them, and haven't heard of any complaints from the engineers I know.

    Yes, I`m interested in it too. Dear NYC citizens, couldn`t you name non-internet shops where I can just come and buy Crucial SSD and memory :)

    My experience with the Crucial C300 256GB was nightmare!!! Tried partition & format then clean install of MacOS-17" 2011 MBP would not boot.

    Next switched drives back & cloned to Crucial, still would not boot on reinstall-tried everything I could on the Crucial forums & here-still would not boot. Works for some I know, but maybe safer with SATA II?

    Enjoy your trip & new machine.
