So, even after reading the HD post I have a few questions regarding HDDs and SSDs. My current MBP runs on the standard 250gb Hitachi HDD 5400rpm. I'm considering upgrading to 500gb or even 750gb but my MBP is just barely a month old I still have 200gb of space left. Space that will quickly decrease once I start recovering all the music I've lost from my ipod. ; o;... My questions are: 1. Should I wait and use up all the space on my current HD before buying one with larger memory? I download a lot of music, movies, pictures and I have a lot of applications most of them for CG and school related. 2. HDD or SSD? I hear a lot of discussion on this with the key points being: HDD: Much cheaper, larger memory SSD: More stable, less likely to fail on you Since I'm a student with a limited budget, I figured a HDD would be best. e ue;; But in the long run, is a difference in MBP processing speed between the two? 3. What is the best recommended HDD and SSD brand? I'm looking on Newegg and it seems Western Digital Scorpio is very popular along with Seagate. Which one has better reliability? Thank you. ; n; I'm only trying to get the most out of my MBP. Oh, it's a 2010 13" MBP 4GB ram. Not sure what else is needed. I apologize if a similar thread was already set up, I couldn't find one when I was looking around.
