    I got mine yesterday.... LOVE IT! Compared to my 6 year-old PowerBook, the build quality alone is much higher.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    I wasn't planning on going for the SSD drive but when it came to ordering I decided to go all out. Plus I got paid this month so I had the money in my bank

    I would have waited on the SSD. >_<" Samsung is mass producing their 256 GB SSD at the end of this year.

    Longer battery life and no moving parts is not a huge change?

    I had both a ssd and a HHD airs, There was no difference in battery length at all, I tested the units when they first can out.

    It's this line that says it all..

    Anyway, my choice to go with SSD was due to performance results more then anything.

    I'm not going to argue over this anymore, but that article was still based on the the first test that Tom's Hardware did.

    The link that I posted was their revised test. Did you even read the link that I posted?

    The OCZ SSD based on Samsungs SSD is more energy efficacy than the HDD that are out now. Plus it blows away HDD in seeking, reading and whatever else.
