Excellent speed with my Macbook
I put this drive into my new 15" Macbook Pro (early 2011 edition, i7 Sandy Bridge processor) to replace the stock 500GB drive. The user replacement, which does not void the Apple warranty, took all of about 15 minutes and that was mostly because of having to remove and then replace 10 screws on the back of the Macbook Pro to get access to the drive bay. Restored from Time Machine, and I was in business. I had read a lot about these Intel SSD drives, but I was still surprised by how huge the change is in boot times, application loads, etc. My OSX system boots in 13 seconds. My Windows 7 VM session running under Parallels boots in about 20 seconds. Large applications, even Photoshop CS5, open and load in a few seconds. The computer is wonderfully responsive and it even seems to run a little cooler as well. Bottom line, I love this drive. It changes the entire computing experience. Granted, I have had it in for only a day or so, but thus far I am extremely impressed.
