So I currently own an early-2008 MBP, one of those with potential time-bomb-waiting-to-go-off Geforce 8600s, and I would like to get rid of it while I can still get some decent $$ for it. I'm in the market for this MBP and will likely be purchasing it around Thanksgiving (Black Friday) - (do you think they will be lowering prices then? They did when I bought my current MBP in 2008.): http://www.macmall.com/p/Apple-Notebook-Computers/product~dpno~8300861~pdp.gdchhce 15.4" Intel Core i7 2.2 Ghz 4GB RAM 750 GB HD Intel HD Graphics 3000 and AMD Radeon HD 6750M I will probably pick up 8GB RAM along the way, since it seems mad cheap at around $45. Also, my plan is to replace the SuperDrive with an SSD. I need a reliable drive, but obviously would like speed as well. From what I heard Intel's 320 SSD's are quite reliable (though there was, until recently, a bug which Intel now has fixed if I'm not mistaken?), and provide decent speed (though they are not among the fastest), but if I were to take Intel 320, I was thinking either 120GB or 160GB. Other possibilities include OCZ Vertex 3? Crucial? OWC? And what's with SATA II vs. III? Should I take the one with SATA III? When replacing SuperDrive with a hard drive, do I have to replace it with the regular HD or with SSD? Where do you place which? Will I need Optibay? Thanks in advance.
