    My mid 2007 MacBook runs pretty well and I am happy with the speed of it but after seeing a video on YouTube showing the speed at which a MacBook with an SSD opens applications, I am inclined to buy one for mine. I have no intentions of buying a newer MacBook so figured spending around £60 on an SSD for this MacBook seems like a good investment.

    After a bit of searching around I have found the two SSDs below. Could you tell me whether these would be compatable with my MacBook? Also, are they just a case of inserting the SSD into my MacBook (I will follow a guide on iFixit), installing a clean install of OS X Lion and then restoring my files and programs from a Time Machine backup?

    1st SSD: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/LP/kingston_ssd_sale.php

    2nd SSD: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/190688569...X:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649#ht_1362wt_1190

    Are they both the same speed? If they are I will go with the larger one. Also, if there are any better deals that you know of I would appreciate it, I am always looking to save money!

    Anything over 100gb would suit me fine as most of my files are on my 2tb External Hard Drive.

    I apologise for firing all these questions at you, it all seems to confuse me when I look round at SSDs and they start mentioning SATA II etc. :confused:

    I also presume you can't upgrade the processors in these MacBooks so my only other option to speed it up would be to increase the RAM.

    Thanks in advance! I really appreciate all the time you guys spend on here answering people's questions.
