SR-71 Blackbird a c 149 G Storage February 24, 2013 9:27:31 PM No, it's the standard but still a decent drive.I own both. hagjohn February 24, 2013 9:32:54 PM In this instance, Intel would be the better choice because of the read/write times. hero1 February 24, 2013 9:42:41 PM I second Samsung. I have 2 of their SSDs and they are awesome. Go finda 830 since it's not that far behind the 840 Pro and you save around $80 for a 256GB model. g335 February 24, 2013 9:57:13 PM hero1 said:I second Samsung.
