    Not the best on the market, but I'd say absolutely decent for a subnotebook (if I'm allowed to re-invent that oldish term ;)).

    Edit: But still, don't give too many credit for XBench results. The software is years old and not suited for benching SSD drives.

    +1. I give pretty much zero credit to xbench in 2010 at this point.

    I see you have gone for the same model I've ordered, how are you finding it so far? Is it nice enough to use in OS X?

    Wow! :eek:

    Mac Jones,

    Thanks for the test results! Would you mind doing the full test and posting the results? I'd like to see if this is a decent upgrade from my old ass Macbook 1.1

    That is 64GB SSD results. 128GB and 256GB models are different (read faster) unless apple somehow did own firmware for toshibas ssd controller. This however probably doesnt make any real work difference :)
