Hi guys.

I want to get a new mac book pro... my current white mac book just can't handle my work load

I want to get a top spec 13" model... 2.8ghz.

My question, is the 512gb solid state hard drive worth it?

My main goal is a fast as possible laptop... but battery life is also important... I read somewhere that these can drain the battery more when not in use?

How much faster are they than a regular hard drive?

I'm in China and can buy this in hong kong for 700EURO less than my own country, Ireland... mad!
QUOTE Thanks

As far as I know it doesn't drain battery life faster then a HDD, and its about 2.5 times faster I would say.

A man who is not one for words once told me...
