Solid State Drives: The Intel X25-M is king

The only SSD drive that I can recommend at this time, after extensive research, are the X25-M drives from Intel. I have one of them in my MacBook and Mac Pro. They are used for the OS and the applications. I only have the 80GB version, but how I have things set up this works fine for such a small drive. Let me come back to that, but first point you to a few articles. I’m linking to the conclusion pages. You can dig further into them if interested.

Keys out of order on MacBook, DiskWarrior to the rescue

My white MacBook is from the first run of 1.83GHz machines from May of 2006. I don’t depend on it for anything more than couch surfing and on-the-go computing. It has been back to Apple several times early on for issues, but once those were resolved the machine has been pretty reliable.

Until now.
