Default 32 gig ssd with osx - 10-22-2008, 10:48 PM

Just curious, is anybody here running osx with the 32 gig upgrade? If so, are you experiencing the same slowness that the guys running xp are?

Only the people running NTFS are experiencing any slowdown. That said, I'll have my SSD by the weekend. I've run numerous benchmarks on the 8gb SSD setup I have now, and I'll re-run them with the 32 and see how it compares. The faster SLC 32gb SSD is only a hair more than 3x the price of the MLC everyone has been buying. If you're really concerned about speed, get that. That SLC unit should run circles around the STEC drive.
