Okay, I am a professional video editor who uses his Mac with Final Cut Pro and Motion (for now, FCP 7, not FCPX) for HD video editing and up until now I've been using a 5 year old G5 2.0 Ghz Power PC. I have to upgrade to an Intel machine for a new gig and so I've decided to get the 6-core 3.33Ghz Westmere, thanks to all the "Sweet spot" reading I've been doing. BUT my final question is -- do I want to get the SSD, and if so do I want the Apple factory Toshiba 512 SSD or do I want to go through the hassle of upgrading to something like an OWC SSD for a few dollars savings and possibly some kind of improvement in quality? I have no idea what a real-world improvement in speed will look like especially if I'm mostly using the SSD as my boot/start-up/applications drive and still using FW800 external drives for my media. Can anybody break this down and let me know why I'd want to get something other than the SATA drives or the Apple (Toshiba) SSD if my intention is to use it as the start-up drive and not just a media/scratch disc? Thanks!
