    Ok so I am looking to put a SSD in my MacBook Pro 1.1. I have a 500GB WD installed in it right now. I am looking to put an Intel SSD where my 500GB is now and move my 500GB to where my optical drive is now with MCE OptiBay. After that I plan on keeping Snow Leopard and apps on the SSD, while my home folder will live on the 500GB.
    I was wondering what kind of read wright speed i am looking at coming from my 500GB being converted from SATA to the old plugin.

    That hard drive will be nearly unaffected. PATA speeds are up to 133MB/s.

    I have an X25-M in a MacBook 2,1 with SATA (150MB/s) and can tell you its an improvement (especially with VMs) but its not nearly as big an increase that others are seeing with newer machines.
