Hi, I had an ibook G4 long time ago and I had a problem with the hard drive. I lost all my information. I have also had an early 2011 13" MBP. Since day one, this MBP was always very slow. I went to a technician three days ago and he said that it was the HD. He also said that I shouldn't have taken for granted its slowness; under warranty it could have been checked. He suggested me getting a new HD. I have thought on getting a SSD, perhaps that is a much better option. I have seen a SSD from ifixit for $125 and another for $400 usd One is a 'hybrid drive' and the other is a 'pure' SSD, I guess. The 1TB Hybrid for $110 usd https://de.ifixit.com/Store/Mac/1-TB-SSD-Hybrid-2-5-Inch-Hard-Drive/IF107-122-2 The 1TB 'pure' SSD for $385 usd https://de.ifixit.com/Store/Mac/1-TB-SSD/IF107-132-1 However, my budget is no more than $150 to replace the hard drive. To my surprise the only thing I can get for less than $150 usd in ifixit is a 128 GB SSD! Could it get any cheaper from any other sources?? https://de.ifixit.com/Store/Mac/128-GB-SSD/IF107-123-2 I have looked at Crucial and it seems to me that they only handle at the moment the 'hybrid' ones. It states that what they have now are only 'SATA's' with internal SSD's. http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/ssd The 480 GB goes for $130 usd. http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/ct480bx200ssd1 However what is the difference between the 'hybrid', (sata ones), and the 'pure' ones ?? Are there any other places to look for a cheaper SSD's? Thank you in advance, very kind regards, igmolinav : ) !!!
