Now this is assuming that the rumors that the new MBP's won't come with ssds standard. Would it be worth it to just keep the base HDD that comes standard, and upgrade myself to an SSD? Or upgrade with apple while I'm customizing? My original plan was to buy a current mbp with a 128 ssd and just buy a 1tb external HDD. But hearing the rumors of standard ssd's in the 2011 mbps got me thinking. Also let me just use this also to say a quick introduction, I'm new here. I'm a life long pc user and switching to my first mac once the new mbps are released. (No i'm not asking when, I've read to many of those threads already) I can't wait to switch to mac, I just sold the computer I built this summer, yesterday to help fund the mac! So hello!
