Decided to Pull the Trigger on a SSD for my Older MacBook Pro


Recommended Posts

After much thinking and researching, I decided to pull the trigger this morning and purchase a Crucial 256 GB m4 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive SATA drive to replace my failing 640GB WD Blue drive in my 2008 MacBook Pro.


My current drive started giving me hard drive warnings the last few weeks. Upon further investigation (using Drive Genius 3 and TechTool Pro 6), I was able to discover possible SMART issues. Also I am getting the beachball effect the more I use my Macbook Pro.


I will get my drive in a few days and backup my drive.


Since Apple is going to release Mac OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion) in July, I will install the SSD in the Macbook Pro and do a clean install of 10.8.

Sounds good. I have to rebuild my friends' 2006 Macbook pro (he dropped it and smashed the aluminum case, a dead/donor system is on the way from ebay for $120) and I've been bugging him to upgrade to an SSD at the same time.

Let us know how it goes.
