    I own the Vertex and the Vertex is the fastest they make. From fastest to slowest: Vertex > Apex > Core.

    I'd choose the X25-M, but the price is enough to kill you...

    That's still not a bad price. 60GB is plenty for throwing the OS and programs on.

    Go with the OCZ. I have an older version that is half the speed and it rocks!! The Apex series is rated faster than the Vertex series.
