My late 2009 MacBook still runs well. Over the years I've upgraded to more RAM and a 500 gig SSD. Now I'm almost running out of space again (we take a ton of pics and videos) and need a bigger HD. I can't justify the ridiculous pricing of new MacBook Pros, and I don't feel comfortable with trusting Apple's iCloud Photo Library service yet. That sort of leaves me with the only option of buying a new 1TB SSD until new MacBook's start offering that as the base model (years away?). These days my main use for my old MacBook is storing all the pics from me and my wife's iPhones. Putting more money into a very old laptop isn't ideal but seems most cost effective given my primary use/need. Anyone else here in a similar situation? Thanks.
