    Wink Another Happy Mac convert
    After the pleasant experience with our new iMac, I just purchased a Macbook Pro for my work. Because I was spoiled by the bootup times of our iMac with a SSD, I elected to get the Macbook with a 128 GB SSD. I stayed at that size because of cost considerations. I then used an OWC Disk Doubler to install an additional 500 GB Seagate Momentus Hybrid drive for additional storage. While I no longer have the internal optical drive, I don't miss it and can always hook it up as an external.
    I can't say how impressed I am with the construction of the Mac, the quality of the products from OWC along with their detailed instructions, and the overall "Mac" experience.

    I can't say that I have never encountered problems or frustrations after switching, but as a whole it has been one of my better decisions. Glad to see it has been the same for you.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    Congrats mate.
    I have recently seen some Videos of a member that has a SSD in his MBP running Lion and how quick it booted up with his Start Up Items there as well . . . . Super Duper quick, but i can't justify the price atm with the casual Mac use i do with it . . .
    Envious though
