    Macbook pro - 512gb SS Hard drive worth it? for speed
    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!

    2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 duo processor 4 GB of memory 300 GB HD imac, 8GB Ipod Touch 4th generation
    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...
