Win The World’s Fastest 13-Inch MacBook Pro With A 1TB SSD!

By

hardwrk-biturbo-6

This is just totally sick. The guys over at Germany’s Hardwrk have taken 16GB of DDR3 RAM and a 1TB Samsung 830 SATA III SSD bundled up in an SSD-RAID-0, slapped it into a 13-inch MacBook Pr running an Intel Core i7-2640M 2.8GHz chip.

The result? A three-thousand euro behemoth of a machine — custom-engraved and covered in a beautiful matte black covering — that they say is the world’s fastest MacBook Pro, and with a 1.7 second PhotoShop boot-up time, we’re inclined to believe them.

Best of all? They’re giving this bad boy away to one lucky winner. All you have to do is leave a comment on their post.

  13. Kenton Presbrey says:

    I just put a 240GB OCZ Vertex 3 in my early 2011 2.2Ghz MacBook Pro with 16GB Ram. It is absolutely ridiculous; everything is instant. An SSD is the best thing you can do to your computer if you are looking for significant performance gains. I’ve built tons of systems throughout my days and done tons of performance upgrades and tweaks. Never have I seen such an immense performance boost from any component like that of an SSD upgrade. Once you use a machine with an SSD you soon realize how much HDD are holding everything back. All of the sudden your machine boots in just a few seconds (especially OS X machines), Apps launch instantaneously, and the entire system is cooler and quieter. One major factor that was previously holding me back was losing all that storage space that comes with HDD, however, with iCloud, iTunes Match etc. I found that 240GB of storage was more than suffice and cloud storage is only going to become more prevalent. So if you were thinking about dropping some cash on a brand new machine first consider upgrading to an SSD. I promise you, your old machine that you once thought was getting old and clunky will feel like a brand new system.

    SICKKKK!

  38. Daniel Norman says:

    Not strictly a 1TB drive, it’s two 512 drives striped as a RAID 0 volume. Just something to keep in mind… that’s about performance, but comes with increased risk to your data. Back up, back up, back up. (I recently had a catastrophic drive failure in a RAID 0 array in a Mac Pro at work, and the volume wasn’t backed up, because the guy who configured it thought “RAID” meant redundancy #facepalm).

    I’m sure I can find a way to make this thing useful. But, if you decide to go in another direction, pick AliJoy.

  40. clgregory says:

    Our main concern about getting a laptop (other than the higher cost than a desktop) is less memory to put our stuff on the computer. We run our movies and music through Apple TV. That would address our concern. Looks very nice.

    Hopefully this is a fully working MacBook, seeing as how Germany has upheld its ban on Apple’s iCloud and MobileMe push services…maybe they left some things out. ;)

    The reason I want to win the MacBook 13″ is because I am a college student. well truthfully I am a full time college student and my younger brother is becoming a senior in highschool soon this coming fall. Well he doesn’t have a laptop and I have a 15″ MacBook pro but I always need it for my colleges courses and can’t lend it to him a lot. Well we have to one old computer with a slow hard drive I mean really slow and he can’t do his homework or essays fast because of it. Sometimes I feel bad about it but yes. Right now we could buy

I never thought to replace the optical drive, nice! Please let me have this one! I will donate mine to a starving artist or something!
