    Hi everyone!

    Well i own a Macbook Pro 2.4GHz C2D and I have heard that SSD are very good ... only that there is a problem, I know nothing about SSD.

    I want a 120GB SSD only.

    What do you advise? Heard of "SandForce controller" and "trim". What does that have to do with the SSD's?

    Thank you! :)

    You have a lot of options. Intel is supposed to be among the most reliable, but slower than many others. I went with the OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 120GB SSD and it has been extremely fast. Well worth the upgrade IMO. Only suggestion I have is not to stress about getting the newest SSD's that work with SATA3 connections because your won't be able to take advantage of the drive. Any second gen. SATA2 SSD's will work well.
