Hi all, I'm a new here and gradually progressing from PC to the world of Apple..and I love it At the moment I have a mid 2012 MacBook Pro 13" i5 4gb 500gb HDD, basic model but geekbenching at around 6800 standard, I plan a few upgrades and this is where the questions come in and would be most grateful for some techy answers - I have purchased a Crucial M4 256gb SSD, will this operate at the same read/write speed in the opti drive bay as if I mounted it in the HDD bay?? I ask this question as it seems bit of a gray area whether its 3mb/s or 6mb/s speed dependent on year or 13" or 15" model?? Also I will upgrade the RAM from 4gb to 16gb, is this worth it or should I just go with Apple's suggestion of 8gb?? money is not the issue here as 8 to 16 gb is a few ££ more. For stability I will buy the Crucial RAM as its 1.35v compared to most other upgrades which are 1.5v What is the best connector for a hooking up the MBP to a external monitor with dual DVI connections?? Really sorry about all the questions but I'm keen to get my Mac flying but also super reliable so any advice or answers will be very welcome.
