    Hi Guys,

    Would I notice a big difference in performance in my Mid 2009 13" 2.26GHz MBP if I changed the 500GB HD to a 128 or 256 SSD?

    I currently have 8GB Ram in the system, and I'm happy with how it runs.

    If I were to buy and instal an SSD, would I be able to use this same one in a 2012 MacBook Pro if I chose to upgrade to one in the future?

    Thanks.

    Yes!
    Yes, as long as it's not the Retina.

    Hi Rob,

    What exactly would I notice?

    I mean, I think it runs pretty good now?

    You would notice speed increases in everyday tasks such as start-up time, launching applications, etc.

    Anything that tasks the hard drive really.

    Besides from getting better performance, the computer will also be quieter. No more harddrive noise. I value that as high as the increased performance.
