Hi everyone, received my MBP yesterday and am very happy so far. Also upgraded the ram to 8GB and definitely notice a big speed bump when running parallels and Office 2010. I am still considering to upgrade to SSD in order to further boost performance. 1) Is there any disadvantage in terms of stability and compatibility running Excel 2010 via Parallels compared to Bootcamp? I am asking because I need a rock solid Excel that is fully functional for my dissertation. 2) Will a VM run significantly faster with an SSD drive? (e.g. 20-30% faster?) 3) If so, which SSD drive would you recommend that is least 160GB? Is it worth waiting for the Intel X25 G3 or are there good affordable alternatives? What are your thoughts on the Seagate Momentus XT? Many thanks in advance!
