    Upgrading macbook pro to ssd
    So recently my MacBook Pro's (late 2008 model) hard drive has been sounding terrible when accessing files and just in general, like the bearings are on there way out. Since my warranty for a new hard drive has expired, I was thinking about just upgrading to an SSD. Has anyone tried this? and suggestions on what to buy? any good youtube links? Thanks!

    I replaced the hard disk in my old Powerbook 3400 with an Addonics CF>ATA adaptor and love it. I've got twin 16GB CF cards inside it now. Silent, quick, and it saves a ton of battery power :p

    it's a very worthy upgrade. Because of fast access times, it generally makes your computer very nippy! Just mare sure you buy an established brand like samsung, ocz, intel etc.

    Did it to my Late 2008 MBP with a 128GB SSD. Best upgrade I've ever done. No application icon takes more than one bounce to open.

    That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.
