In this InkShow, I run a series of tests comparing a Model 02 1.6 ghz SSD to a Model 02 1.5 ghz HDD . The speed differences really show themselves on bootup and application start-up. My own battery experiences indicate about 45 minute to an hour improvement over the HDD based Model 02. FYI: I did try using Battery Eater, but ran into problems with the application.
My thanks to Eddie VanDerbeck for sending me his Model 02 to do comparison testing with.
