Ok so I am a Mac Pro 2,1 3ghz user but thought I would try the 2.7GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7 MacBook Pro, Turbo Boost up to 3.7GHz. I have a 2010 17 inch too. (which I'm not sure what I'm going to do with now as I quite liked it but found myself pressing the buy button on the app store, oops) My question is about thunderbolt. As none of my older macs have it, I feel that I'm not very informed on the situation. I would like to be able to use the thunderbolt as my main storage, I have a 2TB drive just for storage on my MP. (around 500gb of movies etc, most can deleted as I do acquire a lot of crap ones for some reason) What are the best options for thunderbolt enabled drives? Better to get SSD or stick with HDs? Any input would be helpful.
