Re: MacBook Pro 17"

I've got an early 2011 17" with the 2.2GHz microprocessor. I pulled the DVD drive and put the stock drive in its place. I have a Samsung 830 ssd in the hole where the hard drive was. The ssd is partitioned into three, a snow leopard system, a mountain lion system and some spare space for Lightroom library and other things I want loading fast. The home folders are on the slow hard drive with aliases between them for documents movies music and photos.

This machine flies. Perhaps the latest greatest is a hair faster but its not a considerable difference. Ips screen and usb3 would be nice though.
