Really brought the thing back to life and made it feel snappy again. My morning email and weather check was delightful.
^ i recently upgraded my macbook pro with an SSD and put the old 1tb HDD into the optical bay (using a caddy). its weird how CD/DVDs optical drives are the new "floppy drives" (essentially useless).
the upgrade in performance with SSD is really awesome (but sadly you get used to it within 20 seconds of use
I'm really happy that simple things like SSD swaps can really extend the life of computers.... saves money, less waste ect ect.
