Your very welcome.

However, before you decide on an SSD make sure to read up on these issues:

  • Problems regarding the SSD TRIM function and the OS X file systems.
  • What memory controller you do and don't want in your SSD

If you don't you might be very disappointed in you SSD after a month or two...
