    When you get your MBP with the SSD, mind posting screenshots from OSX and Windows ( you can download win7 for free ;) ) to help us resolve this issue ?

    Thanks ! And good luck with your new MBP ...

    The guy who responded to you bought a first generation unibody Macbook (2.4 GHz). All of those unibody models are SATA II.

    THe model you just ordered is a second generation unibody MBP (2.53 GHz). According to what other people has said, it will be SATA I.

    Bought it last week online with 256 GB SSD BTO; SATA is 1.5 Gigabit. Not that I'd really care -- it's a blazing fast machine.

    I don't even care what speed it is because my BTO SSD is FAST.

    I came from a 12'' powerbook and had no clue it would be this crisp and quick.

    good times.

    I've heard of people ordering online their MBP's with SSD post WWDC and they were coming with SATA II.

    I received my BTO 13" MBP with 128GB SSD on Friday. System Profiler doesn't state whether it's SATA I or II, it just states the speed which is 1.5 Gigabit. I'm assuming that's SATA I.
    This machine is crazy fast. Much better than my previous Air with SSD.

    NVDIA also doesn't make any chipsets with that kind of limitation. Of course no one will know what the true cause of the SATA 1 / 2 issue is until Apple releases info on the matter but, I am thinking it is a limit on a SATA 2 capable hardware to increase battery life.

    Hey would any of you guys post full reviews on the 13" MBP with 128GB Apple SSD? I really want to buy one this week but all reviews of the 13" MBP are on the standard HDD, and I want to try it with Apple's optional 128GB SSD (I'd rather have more storage for $350 than spend $300 on an 80GB Intel X25 that's a little bit faster)
