    Has anyone installed their Seagate Hybrid M XT 500GB in their 13' MBP and curious to see what the performance is like.

    I have two of these drives and I am thinking of getting another for my sons Base model 13" 2011 MBP with the i5 2.3 to replace the slow stock drive.

    Is there any performance increase that is really relevant, or just a slight boost on startup and shutdown?

    Have one in my daughter's 2009 13" MBP. Never took any actual measurements, but the sense was only a slight boost in response overall...not really during bootup like you would see with an SSD.
