Brand-new 17" MacBook Pro Performs Brilliantly with OWC 6G SSD

See previous blog entry on the issues with 6G SSDs and my 17" MacBook Pro.

A neighbor of mine just bought a brand-new 17" MacBook Pro, and graciously offered to let me test the OWC 6G SSD in it.

His MacBook Pro 17" performed brilliantly with the OWC 6G SSD, as shown below.

Mine is currently on its way to OWC for a fix (so I hope). The difference? Could be a bad cable on mine, could be that Apple has made a silent manufacturing change, who knows.
