Well, the Ken Mingis over at ComputerWorld has figured out how to make a Macbook run faster, simply by swapping out the harddrive with an SSD, read more there.
As I’m wont to do whenever I get a new computer, I ran a quick Xbench benchmarking test. The results were about what I had expected — in a good way. The faster SSD yielded an Xbench score for the MacBook of 144. That’s on par with the SSD-based MacBook Air I had parted ways with. (The Air had a score of 141.) And both were far ahead of the Xbench scores for the 2.4-GHz MacBook I tested in October (122) and my old 2007-model 17-in. MacBook Pro (118).
