    Hey billpaxton, I'm wondering how long a boot time is from that SSD? Can you post the benchmark of it too, if you have? Thanks!!!

    hey guys, really enjoying the speed of my new MBP. i will just state the speed is amazing! blazingly fast.

    after installing a few random apps and updating software update with 1.2gb of updates & copying 20gb to the hard drive i am still booting up at 24 secs. which is just SOOO fast.

    happy with the results, 300 on the disk test & 299.99 on the bench system wide test.

    to be honest numbers are nothing to me, you REALLY have to see the speed to beleive it.

    sadly i ordered 8gb of ram but the order stuffed up & i only received 4 so when i put the other 4 in the results should be bumped up a little.

    testing out adobe Creative suite now, but im sure it will be just as fast as the rest.

    I highly doubt you'll notice a difference between 4gb and 8gb of ram.

    It's probably just filling up the ram that you have. Adding the rest will only allow you to run more apps simultaneously without requiring as many disk read/writes.

    So many people confuse RAM for speed... XD

    If you think start-up is still too slow... Perhaps you'd like to try this?

    BTW... If anyone knows how to install MacOS X without an external USB/FW DVD, please let me know - I've forgotten :(

    so true! im not in it for the figures i just have ALL CS4 & some of CS5 suite open & the odd VM running + 2-3 browsers. so yeah will suit me well.

    i think the SSD was the most impressive upgrade of them all. having used it now, my mac pro xeon at work even seems slow.

    The SSD is nice. But for VM's, the extra RAM is helpful as well.
