Hi. I don't remember when I purchased my MBP. It's 15", the first one that came out with SD slot and non-replaceable battery. It has 2.8 processor 500Gb HDD and Nvidia 9600. (looking at guides here, it looks like its a 2009 model, no?) Well, I am trying to figure out what RAM and HDD to add to maximize it: HDD: 1TB - any suggestions, what is the best one out there now? I hear that Samsung M8 is one of the most common ones here? I probably would not want SSD at this time. RAM: Is 8Gb max that I can put in? Someone else posted a link to this memory, would it work? G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Laptop Memory So, if my laptop has 4Gb 1033 now, would a 1333 work? I read people reporting that it works fine. Thank you and please post links or names if there is something better that I can buy for this laptop.
