    Great video to see the massive improvements a SSD gives you over the regular hard drive.

    In everyday use such an upgrade is more noticeable than a new processor or graphics card.

    @GadgetUniversity Yeah! That’s exactly what i did, too! I picked mine up on Black Friday for $100 then i bought the FireWire 800 adapter since Mac’s don’t support USB 3.0.

    @Mr360iModz I am actually doing that now. I picked up the Seagate 3TB from best buy to go with my 13″ macbook pro. whatever brand you get. Make sure it does firewire. It helps out a lot.

    @NitrosKB aah thank you 🙂

    well i knew he was going to put 2 in but they seem really expensive. -_-
    Wanted to do something like this myself cause i hate the noise my mbp makes

  5. NitrosKB says:

    @leeuwengast Yep! The thing is, a lot of people don’t need that much storage. 120 gb is actually too low for ANYONE though, so he is actually going to take out the optical drive and put in two more 120 gb hard drives. =]

    Hey Jon, 2 questions for ya… I want to keep SL, how do I enable trim on an SSD? Also, is there a way to install icloud on SL? I dislike what has happened to spaces and expose on Lion. Not to mention the battery life.

    Just got this Same SSD but in 60GB! I was worried about it failing as OCZ don’t have the best name when it comes to SSD’s but my macbook pro is so fast now! YAY! Although, my hard drive speedtest only shows writes of 75mbbps and reads of 190mbps rather than the promised potential 475write 500 read.
