My new SSD and Ram just came in for my *cough* Macbook Pro *cough* I need to run out and grab a USB stick (don't want the ones I got formatted) before the transplant. I have to install the recovery partition onto the usb stick since its a new drive. Will likely need to keep this stick for recovery only.
The HDD in the MBP right now is rated at 5400 RPM (SATA 3, I think), so I am sure SATA 3.0 at 6gbps is going to be insane.
Most people run from storms, I run to them (back by popular request )
