    Ok so that's the old, do you think a local bestbuy would have the new ones in stock? Or did they just start rolling out?

    It only got announced last week. Usually takes a couple of weeks to become available to the big online sellers and then in limited quantities. Distributors and bricks and mortar stores will take a couple weeks more.

    NewEgg is probably the best bet in the US.

    I just installed that drive in my mid 2009 MBP and am very happy so far.

    My boot time is at 15 seconds and as it learns my applications, they open fast as well.

    In fact, I bought mine from Amazon also.

    New drive will have higher density platters for the mechanical drive, therefore it'll be a bit quicker.
