I'm wondering, among the SSD owners, whether or not the cost was worth it. I spoke to a friend who has a 60GB vertex and he seems to say that it is 100%. I think in my case it almost might not be though - I'm a software developer, so most of my work is not graphics-intensive. I do like my computer to be fast though, and have noticed the MBP lagging behind a little on occasion. As for the capacity issue, I don't care TOO much - 60+GB would be fine. The laptop is more or less used for work and school, and I have gigabit ethernet all over so if I need to stream HD movies at home it's not a big deal at all. I've been debating buying one of the low-end SSD's (MLC, either intel, ocz vertex, or corsair), for around $200. The hard drives I was looking at were in the $90 range (probably 500GB caviar blue), so $200 isn't totally unreasonable if I go the SSD route. Here's the drives I was looking at: Corsair Extreme (64GB) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233090 OCZ Vertex (60GB) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227394 Intel X-25M (80GB) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820167005 These seem to be the better quality models available at the $200 price point, with *decent* capacity and from what I hear they have good controllers, no stuttering issues, etc.
