    2010 Mac Pro | 2011 15" MacBook Pro | 2009 13" MacBook Pro
    I just downgraded to a 13" 2.7Ghz 2011 MBP yesterday (from a 15" 2.3Ghz). I had an OWC Data Doubler in the 15" which I migrated to the 13". While the installation is not difficult to anyone who's comfortable working inside a computer the installation of the OWC Data Doubler was not as simple in the 13" as it was in the 15" perhaps due to tighter spaces and the way the speaker layout is in the 13". It was still done in <30 mins. (I was being extra careful).

    The OCZ Vertex 3 and OWC Data Doubler/750GB Scorpio black along with the make a dramatic difference on the these machines performance while still offering a lot of storage. OWC offers good directions and includes the necessary tools for their Data Doubler and may have the directions specific to the new 2011 models on their website. ...really good company and products in my experience.
    Macs? Oh yes, several.

    Yeah. I cloned the restore DVDs onto a 16GB flash drive. Optical media has reached the end of it's useful life, and wanted something that would be quicker and not have to worry about using the DVD drive that is no longer in my MBP.
