I'm pretty set on a second gen Series 9, but can't choose between the Ivy Bridge model or the Sandy bridge model. Both are completely identical, except for the fact that the Sandy Bridge model uses a (very) fast Samsung SSD while the Ivy Bridge model uses a poorly rated Sandisk SSD (some of you may already know this :S ). My question to YOU is: do I go for the more expensive Ivy Bridge model (~1250$) for the newer (but slightly slower) hardware? OR do I go with the Sandy Bridge (~1100) for the (slightly) older hardware but faster performance? (I've read the SSD is faster).

Do you own a Series 9? What are your thoughts?!

Please keep all replies objective. Thanks.
