    I've read that some SSDs don't play nice with Bootcamp. I'm considering upgrading my MBP's drive, but only if it can run Bootcamp. Examples of some things I've read that have me concerned:
    Crucial M225: http://www.forum.crucial.com/t5/Solid-State-Drives-SSD/MacBook-Pro-w-M225-SSD-can-t-boot-from-Windows-CD-DVD-amp-Boot/m-p/6577
    Intel x25m: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=9105464

    My MBP model: 4,1 (2008) -- 2.4 GHz.

    If you are running the same model with a SSD and successfully installed Bootcamp with Windows 7, which manufacturer did you go with? Note, later models don't seem to have as many issues -- so I'm looking specifically for experiences with my same model. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

    Crucial SSDs don't work well with Macs, so avoid them. Intel and OCZ SSDs work well and are fast and fairly priced, shouldn't be any problems with Bootcamp either
