    Check it out, they did their comparisons on a 15 inch MBP which is pretty cool, as it is often hard to go off of PC data figures. I am also impressed to see a mainsteam organization test a product on a more expensive MBP

    The read and write speeds weren't quite as fast as the SandForce models, but they are impressive

    Also, check out the performance stats of the Seagate Momentus 7200 500GB HDD...they are 76 read and write which is also very impressive!!!

    Conclusion: "The Samsung 470 Series Solid State Drive is an excellent option for any power-user who demands the fastest data access times for transferring files and launching applications. But you will pay an extra penny or two for it."

    It is a good thing to see the mainstream recognition of SSDs which indicates they must be gaining popularity!

    I wonder what the speed differences would be when compared with the Seagate Momentus XT.
