BagLadyReviews - SSD Solid State Drives and MacBook Pro
Do you feel the need for speed when you start up your two or three year old MacBook Pro?
Not really ready and don’t have the funds to get a new model?
You may be able to satisfy your speed need without breaking the bank. OWC - Other World Computing (MacSales) - has a line of do it yourself bundles ranging from about $100 to $650, so you can replace your laptop’s internal hard drive with a Solid State drive. The kits come with all the necessary parts and tools and you can choose the amount of space you want from 64 to 480 GB.
Or better still, get the ultimate in speed and space by replacing the super drive (DVD) in your laptop with an SSD, put the super drive into an OWC external enclosure, and use the super drive as an external CD/DVD drive. You then can use the SSD in your laptop as your start up drive with the operating system and applications on it, and use your original internal hard drive for storage. The 480 GB can hold a system and quite a few applications.
You can do the work yourself following the video tutorials on the OWC website.
This is the easy and affordable way to get more speed without buying a new computer, and without spending a fortune. Your older laptop will just feel like a new computer.
