    According to anandtech, all of the OEM's without exception use samsung. This is a bit confusing though since some have reported they got a toshiba... perhaps toshiba is rebadging the samsung?

    Apple uses toshiba in all the uMBP's.. I haven't seen a report of any other brand being used.

    I believe the drives are Toshiba, but the controllers are Samsung controllers like those referenced in the AnandTech article.

    Um, yeah.. that is a complete fabrication of what is actually in the UMBP's..

    I have the 256GB toshiba I took out of my june 17" 3.06, which replaced the March 2.93ghz with a toshiba SSD in it.
