SSD for my non-unibody MacBook Pro 4,1?
I own my MacBook Pro for almost 5 years now!
Always worked perfectly for al those years, but he's getting a bit slow...
So I was thinking about buying a SSD, to give it a boost for his least years.
But the question is, what SSD should I buy for such an "old" MacBook Pro?
Couple of guidelines:
> Currently running OSX 10.6.8, but can update to Lion,...
> The SSD should work good in combination with my current Mac.
> If my Mac decides to die, I would like to use the SSD in an other laptop/desktop.
> Would like to stay in the size of my HDD => 250GB.
> Personally the Samsung Evo 250GB seems a good price/perf ratio.
MacBook Pro 4,1
Intel T9330 CPU
4GB PC2-5300 DDR2/667Mhz RAM
512MB NVIDIA 8600M GT
Thank you for your tips and help!

There are two weeks since I bought a Samsung 840 EVO and it works flawlessly on my unibody late-2009 macbook. I first installed Snow Leopard, but I have just upgraded to Mavericks. The macbook has a SATAII port and the EVO is SATAIII, but it's backward compatible.
It works well in both systems. I didn't enable TRIM because various discussions in forums say that modern SSDs have decent built-in garbage collection.
15" rMBP Early-2013, 2.4GHz. After 3 display replacements, I'm still seeing uniformity problems.

Next, yes the Solid State will be a big performance boost.
