I have a 15" Macbook Pro from March 2008 (pre-unibody)
It has an ExpressCard slot, whereas the Unibody model has an SD card reader instead.
The Wintec 96GB ExpressCard having a write speed of 30 MB/s, I was tempted to try to use it as boot and system partition for my Mac. I heard about overheat issues from previous models, like the 48 GB version, but it should have been fixed.
So far no problems, it has cut the time my Macbook boots to just over 20 seconds. Before it was over a minute.
I have also upgraded from 2 to 4 GB ram memory, and installed a new 500 GB drive internally (was 250GB). I am not done sorting out all the files yet, but my 2 year old MBP has had a serious mid-life update.
For some odd reason, the card I was sent has a label on it which says "ENGINEERING SAMPLE ONLY", but I contacted the manufacturer and we agreed that as long as I have full warranty, I was happy to keep it anyway.
On the condition that it keeps working fine, I should recommend this product to other users.
