Is anyone running an SSD in their macbook pro, preferably an i7 with 8gb RAM?
Is there much of a performance difference over an HDD?

The main difference will be (obviously) with disk access -- so booting your system or launching your programs will be faster. Also, if you store your files on the SSD then opening and saving these will also be faster, but the general operation of the program will be controlled by the speed of the i7 CPU, and the redraw of the graphics on screen will be controlled by the video card...

I have a 2010 MBP w/ 8 gb ram and 256 gb SSD. It does not boot that much faster, about 45 sec. My imac boots quicker and it is stock. I think a lot of that is processor, I have Core I3 in the imac and the MBP is a Core 2 duo. I'm sure a later gen processor will yield improvements. one nice thing with SSD in a laptop is no vibration
