    is 80Gb enough for you then?
    I'm ordering the samsung PB22-J 256Gb which is enough, but not really a lot.

    80gig, that's really not much for a drive these days. You'll only be able to fit the OS and not much else.

    I recently bought a 64GB Crucial SSD which I'm using in my desktop computer in conjunction with a 320GB Samsung HDD.

    The performance of the SSD compared to the HDD will knock your socks off, but I agree with the others that 80GB is simply not enough for the MBP. Especially if you're planning on running Bootcamp.

    Personally I'm waiting for two things to happen before I purchase an SSD for my MBP: for the 256GB SSDs to come down in price (to about $250) and for Mac OS X to finally add SSD optimization by implementing TRIM, among other things. Apple is late to the game here with Win7 and even a few Linux distributions supporting TRIM already.

    80GB is fine if you want the drive to be as a boot-up drive only. But if you want your Intel SSD as your primary drive, then I suggets waiting until next refresh. According to the map we should see 300GB MLC drives with faster speeds and 256GB SLC drive which according to early estimates will cost you a lung, a kidney, 2 pints of blood and half your soul; all of which are to be sacrificed to the Intel gods.

    I'm only using a little less than 30GB out of my 160GB right now. Thats before any cleaning/external storage possibilities.

    For me, I could even live with a 40GB drive if needed.

    you guys are insane. I have the 80 GB X-25 and I have 15 GB free.

    I have 1 GB in docs, spreadsheets, 7 GB in pictures, 25 GB in MP3, all on my SSD.

    I have a LaCie at my desk I plug in for movies, a bigger music library, but most of what I listen to is on 25 GB library.

    80 GB is plenty
