    Hey there,

    Have a dilemma. I just upgraded my 13 MacBook Pro (early 2011, i5) to a 1TB HDD drive: http://wdc.com/global/products/specs/?driveID=951&language=1

    And I got for free 240GB one SSD: http://www.amazon.com/OCZ-Technology-Vertex-2-5-Inch-VTX3-25SAT3-240G/dp/B004QJM1HG

    Now the question is simple really, the answer might cause however mixed feelings. :) For a guy who wants to in the future use xCode, have all his photos on the drive, music and videos etc. Is SSD due to its low capacity fitting my needs? Will i have to carry around a couple of external drives all the time to have all my stuff with me?

    Is it even a good things to change to a drive which is even less than the original drive which was with the MacBook pro? :)

    Thank for the answer.
