I've got an early 2008 macbook white (macbook 4,1) and I've been considering ways to speed it up for quite some time now. I know I should upgrade my RAM as well (Running Lion on 2GB is painful) but I was wondering how much a hybrid drive would help me as well. I was considering this one specifically: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148591 First off, I know that's SATA 3.0Gb/s and my macbook only reads 1.5 but SATA is backwards compatible so that's fine. I just wanted to see with people who might know more whether or not certain drives will work better with macs. So yeah, would that guy work? As well, how much of an improvement will I see with a hybrid drive? I know they aren't as fast as SSD but I don't really have the money for that and the size is a bit small for my liking so I was considering a hybrid drive. So yeah, does anyone have some experience with hybrid drives in older macs?
