    Any model SATA SSD will work fine. Any at all. So the 750 will have no issues.

    Assuming you have the non-Retina 2012 13" MBP of course. :)

    Should work. But, what is the price diff to the 850 Evo? That is a well proven drive with a better warranty.

    Yep, any SATA SSD will work. Any brand, any model.

    Personally, I believe that any ssd is better than any mechanical drive.

    I have used the Samsung 840evo, 850evo, ocz vertex 3, and adata sp550 in late 2011 and mid 2012 mbp 13s. They were all fast and one didn't seem any faster than the others. This is based on my limited use of different SSDs.

    Make sure to flash the drive with the latest firmware and enable trim.

    Almost any current SATA SSD will do you fine. The EVO and the Crucial MX300 would be my recommendation's for the best price performance reliability balance.

    The adata su800 is also a good choice based on reviews of the 3d nand used in the drive.

    750 EVO (500 GB) in my early 2011 MacBook Pro 13", no problems. But as jerryk wrote, better warranty at 850 evo...
