    Anyone here have one and truly love it, I was watching some video on Tiger Direct where they put it to a test with a 7200 RPM, SSD, and 10K Drive and the Hybrid HDD was right behind the SSD.

    Looking to get one or a Hitachi 500GB 7200 16MB Cache?

    I have it, came from the Apple 7200k drive and I didnt really notice much but it works great and same on battery, noise and vibration as far as im concerned... About to get a OCZ Vertex 2 though to speed things up.

    I thought about SSD just on Boot Disk, but then when I am not near my external for itunes, it would be a pain, and SSD are still really expensive right now, I mean $400-600 for a good 256GB is a bit much. I looked at the new 512GB models and they are $,1400+

    My iTunes library and everything else brings me to about 480GB used so I need 500GB or more.

    I plan on putting SSD in the current HDD spot and using an optibay type holder for my hybrid. Keeping all apps on ssd and maybe music and everything else on the hybrid.
