I recently got an ultrabook with a dedicated graphics chip, but without an SSD. I'm planning to upgrade to a 256GB SSD very soon, but I can't decide which one to buy. I have three in mind:
The OCZ Vertex 4 256GB,
The Samsung 830 Series 256GB, or
The as of yet unreleased Samsung 840 Series Pro 256GB.

From the reviews I've read, the drives generally stack up like this: Samsung 830<Vertex 4<Samsung 840 Pro (prototype drivers). I was just wondering if anyone would like to give their opinion on which drive I should upgrade to, taking into account price and performance. Oh yeah, my laptop can only take in 7mm drives, so I'll have to mod the Vertex 4's case if I get that. I know how to do it, so it won't be a problem.

Samsung 830 Series. Reputation for both performance and reliability.

sorry to revive a dead topic, but my friend just brought up a point i haven't thought of before. between the three SSDs I listed, on what applications will I be able to notice a significant speed difference between them? in other words, will i be able to tell the difference between the samsung 830 and the samsung 840 pro?

Nope, not on your life! The differences will only manifest in unreal tests, synthetic benchmarks and other useless searches for trivial data.
