Hello everyone, I was lucky enough to be given a 2006 Macbook Pro 15" 1.1 a few months ago and I have been working to upgrade this wonderful old gal. So Far I have done the following to her: 1. Upgrade RAM from stock 512 MB to 2 GB 2. Upgraded OS from stock to 10.6.8 3. Repaired dead right side fan (this was why i was given the Macbook, original owner thought the hard drive was dying) What I am curious about is what else I can feasibly do to her to max her out. I have been researching SSD hard drives and thinking of installing either a 120 GB SSD or possibly a 1 TB 7200 rpm HDD. Which of these would be the better option for longevity as well as performance in the future. The macbook is my primary computer and I will likely be using it for at least a coupe more years for things like web/email/podcast recording/itunes and Secondlife. No heavy video work, and only mild photo editing using stock Canon Digital Photo Professional and iPhoto. She also needs a new battery which I have determined the best option is direct from Apple to the tune of 129 dollars for a fresh OEM battery.
