Re: Hybrid HDD Mid 09 MBP

There were issues previously with the momentus line and OS X. There's a huge thread over at the Apple Support forums: »discussions.apple.com/message/11 ··· 11629129

It seems they can be kind of hit or miss, but I'm not sure if those problems have been resolved in recent OS X upgrades or Momentus firmware upgrades.

Why not go with a straight SSD? If she's coming from a 120GB drive, a 240GB SSD may be enough space - and it'll be significantly faster than the 5400RPM or even the Momentus.

Agreed. SSD's are getting very inexpensive (compared to last year anyway) and I seen a 240GB going for $129 in Canada a couple weeks ago.

Try Black Friday, you might score big.

And thank user Jackarino See Profile and Thinkdiff See Profile since I had debated getting one of those hybrid drives...seems to be more of a risk than would warrant. It was for my 2009 unibody MacBook.
