SSD used in MacBook

Hi there,



I own a MB 13" unibody and I wonder if anybody could tell which SSD-drives Apple is integrating in their new MBPs? I have noticed that they offer 128GB and 256GB drives, I assume that Samsung is producing them. I know that Samsung has supplied the 128GB SSD drive for the MBA.



Background of my question: I've tested a 160GB Transcend SSD-drive, lasted three days until it crashed. The next one was a 250GB OCZ drive that crashed three weeks after installing. No data was accessible anymore, recovery of the OCZ drive saved only 30% of the entire data.



Thx,

- Malte

    Samsung is your most likely option.

    Do you see less power being consumed to make time between charges longer?



    How about how fast the computer runs - hdd vs. Ssd?



    I have a first gen al mb and have thought about switching drives if I could get more battery life and not sacrifice too much on system speed.
