    I primarily just store a lot of music/photos, use iTunes, iPhoto, Safari, Word, Spotify


    I have a late 2010 Macbook Pro 13" base model

    Your computer can only support 3 Gb/s SATA.

    So the read and write speed of the SSD will be capped at that rate.

    Still, you will notice an improvement over the traditional HDD.

    What type of speed enchantment can I expect? 4-5x?
