It was so easy, compared to fixing up PC's all my life, it was really great. Sure it was a bit hard with the small wires and all, but what really impressed me was the CMD and R. How easy it was to install the Mountain lion on the new SSD. That was really impressive. I had a Crucial m4 (128gb) in my PC, so I took that one. But about the hardware, I have to confess, I could had trouble putting in the SSD, so I put it on top of the Original HDD. The silly thing is that it isn't used since i don't own another set of SATA (or whatever) cable. But I will get it eventually I suppose. Now all I need is some more ram. 4gb just doesn't do it for me, when it comes to video editing..
