    My Mom has a MacBook 2 Ghz core duo, that's getting a bit old even for her uses. I figured I'd max out the ram from crucial and give her a SSD with Snow Leopard on it and that would speed up the machine considerably.
    What I would like to do is put in a OCZ Vertex 2 drive but I just wanted to make sure it would work. I've never done this before, so I figure I get a USB holder to attach the drive to and then install Snow Leopard on that hard drive and then install it?

    Thanks!

    That will work though OCZ drives have had some issues with Macs

    Thanks for your quick reply. I wasnt aware of that, would it be better to go
    with an intel?

    Personally, I would just upgrade the RAM, that will likely be enough. There should be new SSDs early next year with lower price tags so you might want to wait for those
