    Hey, can I buy any SSD and pop it in my Mac?

    I was also wondering what the benefits of them are over a hard drive?
    I am aware that they have no noise, are faster, and use less energy.

    But I wonder, how much faster, can any applications have problems with them?

    And how long do they last? and can you get them in 1GB capacity?

    Does anyone know?

    Kind Regards

    1 GB?
    A 1 GB drive?

    You stated the benefits pretty much already

    Opinions vary on their superiority though
    For now, the cost is an issue
