I currently have a late 15" 2008 MBP.. But it only has the 3Gbs internal ports..

When did they start making the 6's??

Thanks for the info.... But would that be an early '11 or late '11??
- Both. But since you're you're asking about SATA ports in the plural form, I feel I should mention that only the 2012 models have stable SATA 6 Gbit/s in both the main drive bay and the optical bay. Late 2011 has 2 x 6 Gbit/s, too, but the optical link may not function properly with SATA III drives. Early 2011 may have either 3 or 6 Gbit/s in the optical bay and is also affected by the stability lottery (mine is fine, but others are not).
