    I originally got a 120 owc ssd for a mac pro I was about to buy but at the last moment decided to hold off for a bit.

    This leaves me with a ssd laying around gathering dust. Im thinking about putting it in my MBP but have read lots of horror stories on various forums about ssd problems.

    Has their been any resolution to these issues (probs waking from sleep etc) ? I dont want to go to all the effort of reinstalling everything only to enter a world of hurt.

    get an enclosure and clone your drive to the ssd...no reinstall needed

    Another vote for an OCZ Vertex 2 + 8GB RAM. It's a Core i7 rocket now.

    Even if it still has the auto-sleep issue, how often do you actually use it? I disabled the auto-sleep function and have honestly forgotten about its existence. The problem with the SF1200 does not seem to affect the manual sleep/hibernation, only if OS X automatically puts the computer to sleep.
