SSD - which option to take?
Long-time reader, first-time poster. Apologies if this is in the wrong section.
I have a early-2011 base 13" MBP. 320gb hard drive, 4gb ram.
It's starting to feel sluggish, apps take a long time to load, especially those like iPhoto. I don't really use such heavy programmes as Photoshop, but it's still annoyingly slow, especially boot times.
I'm going to buy a RAM upgrade to 8gb, which should help, but after that I still feel like I would greatly appreciate an SSD. I can't afford a large one though - 64gb at most.
I've done a bit of research, and two hard drives seems like the way to go - replace hard drive with SSD, and place HDD in optical bay drive.
This is where I would like some advice - do you recommend trying to sort files manually, eg putting boot files and some applications on SSD, or would you recommend using terminal to create a pseudo Fusion Drive? Those who have had experience with either of these would help a lot.
