According to Macworld UK, Samsung is now shiping the fastest consumer SSD drives avalable to Dell.  The 64Gb drives have a SATA II interface that can support data reading at speeds of 100M Bps (bytes per second) and writing at 80M Bps. That makes it 60 percent faster than SATA I drives of the same type and two to five times faster than conventional hard-disk drives, according to Samsung.

Yes, of course we are thinking MacBook Pros – which should be out before the end of the month.  In case you are wondering how fast these things are, Ryan Block put one in his last generation MacBook Pro (below).   More on SSD MacBook Pros.
