OK, so this isn't a question... but I wanted to share my experieces of the last two days.


On Tuesday I got 16 GB of RAM and a Crucial 512GB 6Mbs SSD. I bought both products from Amazon, because I get two day shipping from them, although the Crucial SSD was 52¢ cheaper at the Crucial site.


I'm very, very happy with my speed. Whereas I was paging in and out on 8GB, I have 7GB free wired RAM available now, even running the same apps that I ran all the time when I only had 8GB. And even though my Time Machine backup was on a Firewire 800 connection, it only took about 2 1/2 hours to 'restore' from TM to my new drive, using an USB Lion thumb drive to boot.


I would encourage anyone wanting lightening fast speed on their MBPs to follow this upgrade path.


Just bragging,



Mac OS X (10.7.4), 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD
