    I pulled out the old Late 2007 Macbook and will be maxing out the ram and want to put a ssd in it. What ssd specs should I look for? Thank you.

    Any of the ones you can buy these days will max out the internal bus on a 2007, so it doesn't matter. Get the cheapest of whatever capacity you want as the more expensive/faster drives will not have any effect.

    I'm curious. What are you using it for? Cuz a 2007 is problematic in terms of browser and software support, due to the fact that it supports only a max of OS X 10.7.5 Lion. I just decommissioned my early 2008 MacBook for this reason, despite the fact I already had SSD and 4 GB RAM in it.

    Just for nostalgic purposes I suppose. Also, possibly to let my 2.5 year old play a game or watch a movie on...

    Go with one of Other World Computing's drives, they're great. You'll get a decent price too since you don't need the top line 6G SATA III models nor are you chasing a huge capacity (I'm guessing.) That, and max out the RAM.

    IMHO, there are far, far, far better options in SSD choices than OWC.

    OWC's SSDs are over priced and not that good for what you pay for.
