It’s a shootout, ya’ll. A 2.5Ghz Core i5 17” MacBook Pro with an SSD vs a similarly spec’d MacBook Pro with a standard 5400 RPM HDD.

In case you don’t wanna watch the entire video, here’s the skinny – The SSD opens up 48 apps in a blazing 18 seconds while the stock HDD from Hitachi takes a yawn-inducing 198 seconds.
