    Hi folks,

    First post and I'm looking for a little advice.

    I currently own a 2010 13' MBP, it's the 2.4ghz, 4GB ram version. Whilst I would love to upgrade to the latest machine I was hoping upgrading might be able to keep me happy for a little longer.

    I have recently got more into my photography and begun using Aperture on a regular basis. I'm finding that the hardware is struggling to keep up with demands of the software and can be rather laggy when editing and hoping between images.

    Would I notice improvement if I double up the RAM to 8GB? Or is it worth upgrading the HDD to SSD?

    Any thoughts would be very much appreciated.

    Cheers!

    Generally, I have had pretty good luck with both increased RAM and SSDs for making things feel a lot zippier.

    Thanks, I guess I will give the RAM a shot first before attempting the SSD
