So I have had my umbp for around 4 months, I upgraded to a WD Blue 500gb shortly after purchasing it; and now I feel like the next step is to go with an SSD. I notice quite a few slow downs while working mainly related to disk access speeds. However, the main thing holding me back right now are my space concerns. I usually keep everything on my 1tb external drive, and should I need to take some files on the go I have an extra 320gb (the original 320gb drive) that I could use. I use my mbp for everything, and find myself using this more than my other rig (specs in sig). The main important things are my small bootcamp partition that I use for the occasional gaming sessions which I don't use that often but I don't feel comfortable getting rid of it completely. I also have a few VM's within Fusion which also host my XP vm that I use daily for VPN/pptp use. Anyhoo, what i'm concerned about is if I would be able to make due with an Intel 160GB SSD (G2) or if I should save up a bit more and purchase an OCZ Vertex 250gb. Those with either one, could you post some xbench results and could you post how you partitioned the drive? I have SSD's in my main desktop, so I know the pro's and con's (with windows 7) and what the differences are between the controllers. I'm familiar with the Intel SSD's, and I run a Vertex in another workstation I have so I know what it can do. However I'm not sure what the performance would look like within OSX and VM usage. Thanks in Advance!
