Seagate Momentus XT 750 GB Solid State Hybrid Drive
With data storage, like most things, you typically need to choose between size or speed. Of course you can custom order a super-fast solid state drive in the MacBook Pro, but at an $1,100 premium for 512GB, it’s not very practical for typical consumers, and space is still somewhat limited. That’s where Seagate’s newly updated Momentus XT 750 GB Solid State Hybrid Drive ($249) comes in. It’s the best of both worlds.
On top of the traditional 750GB, 7,200 hard drive platter, Seagate built-in an 8GB solid state drive. The drive has an algorithm that moves frequently accessed information to the flash memory for faster access. With your OS on the SSD, boot times are next to nothing, and as long as you’re willing to open up your MacBook Pro, installation is really easy. Sure, Momentus XT is more expensive than traditional drives, but for what you’re getting, it’s well worth it.
