I see the ssd options on the mbp's and I wonder if they are worth the extra cost. My wife is going crazy with her new digital slr and I like buying movies in itunes. I just had to replace the hard drive on my 24" imac. Luckily Time Machine saved it all. However, we now have 350 gigs and it will only grow!! I'd like a laptop as second computer. I probably don't need to keep all that data on the laptop, but constantly having to offload files to make room doesn't sound appealing either. I understand the solid state drives are more durable and faster. What do you think?
