My System Specs

Default Intel SSD 530 180GB

Is this worth it ? Im out of the loop when it comes to SSD i have a 128 samsung 840 right now and couldnt be more satisfied but would like to add a secondary ssd for a hackintosh or linux boot havent decided yet.

Canada Computers | Solid State Drives | Intel 530 Series 180GB 2.5" SATA3 6Gb/s Solid State Drive (SSDSC2BW180A4K5)

Thanks

Im planning on using it for a boot, either osx or ubuntu. I really like the osx interface i miss my macbook injut refuse to pay the apple premium ever again...

Ended up picking up the 530 120gb for 129.99 not a great deal but whatever 120gb for an O/S is plenty big

^^ Yes for a Boot Drive is alright...although I wish I had gone with a 180GB....I'm uber careful with what I load on my 120 GB Intel Boot Drive and noticed that I'm already down to 50 GB left.....its a clean install from about 7 months ago!!
