    ...fast!

    My first experience of an SSD optimised system. Incredible. Having upgraded from a maxed out 17", I just can't believe the difference.

    I love it. That is all. :D

    I can't wait. This will be my first ssd I've ever used, and I got the 1tb.

    From what everyone tells me, I will be blown away from the speed. I am used to a 5400RPM HDD in my desktop and a 7200RPM HDD in my 09 macbook pro.

    Yeah, when I got my first SSD, I was in complete awe.

    Yes. I put an SSD in my PC, and it actually boots Windows 7 faster than the BIOS takes to POST! :eek:

    These PCI-e based SSD's are even faster!

    Is there a noticeable difference between the regular SSDs and the PCI-e based ones?

    450-500MB/s old retina, 730-800MB/s new retina

    so yes there is a large difference (when decompressing ...), but in general use (opening a web browser, opening a file in photoshop) the difference will be no way near as large/noticeable as a hdd vs ssd

    my sibling who just bought a 13" pro with cd drive and hdd (because: cheaper, cd drive, lost of storage for photos), will be so amazed in a few years time when getting an ssd for the first time (and it probably being over 1GB/s by then)

    Did not know there was such a difference on paper. Anyway, I'm only buying a new rMBP, at least, in 2 years time so, by then, I will feel wow'ed again.. just like when I worked with an SSD for the first time :D

    just did a blackmagic test - 872.5mb/s read and 948.9mb/s write average

    the difference between this and even a 128gb ssd is astonishing - simply the fastest computer i've ever seen, let alone owned

    The 1TB SSD in the new rMBP can get over 1000MB/s writes. Yeah, the jump won't be nearly as big as from a HD. HDs to old SSDs, about a 600% increase. Old SSDs to new SSDs, about a 70-110% increase

    Yep, it's a whole other world and you can "Shake-it-lika-Pol-a-roid-pict-cha!" and no crashed drives, freaking unbelievable speeds from these things...;-)
