Default Apple's MacBook Pro with 128GB SSD: Performance and Battery Life Investigated

Take how long it takes to launch an application with the stock hard drive and cut it in half, because that's what the Memoright MR25.2-128S gives you. Boot time is also similarly reduced, it takes nearly 40 seconds to boot the stock MacBook Pro while the move to SSD brings it down to 22.

You see similar performance gains in opening files and basic interaction with the system, just not in a lot of the more CPU-bound application tests. It's an interesting revelation because the general view is that application tests are disk bound, but in reality they can be more CPU/memory/platform limited than you'd guess.
