    I am thinking about buying a SSD to install in my late 2008 aluminum macbook. Specs are 6GB of ram, 2.4 GHZ processor, and the standard 250GB hard drive which I believe is 5400 RPMs. So my question is, is it worth it? Will I see that much of a performance improvement? I don't reboot that often. I currently am using 92GB of my 250GB hard drive. So I would probably only need like a 160GB or 200GB SSD. Also if I do get one which one would be a good one to get. What should I look for in features. I am also on a budget so I don't want to pay too much for it. Thanks for the help.

    I too am looking to get a SSD in my 13" MBP (eventually). I think it will be worth it if you don't need TONS of space on your computer. As well as very fast booting, opening applications will only take about one bounce on the dock, and pretty much opening or loading anything will be VERY fast! :D
