    Hello chaps!

    Just a quick question to anyone who might be able to help! I've had this MacBook Pro Early 2008 for a whole now, going to grab myself an SSD to try and improve performance! Wondering if anyone had any advice or experience with this model of SSD I've been looking at? Can anyone else make any other recommendations?

    When looking at forums / blog posts etc. I notice the SSD's which have been listed and recommend are either too old or are no longer available for purchase?

    Thanks for viewing this thread.

    Since your MBP is 2008 and only have SATAII, M4 is a good choice.
    Unless you are thinking to upgrade your computer in the future with SATAIII, get a SATAIII speed SSD.

    ANd if you go on Amazon you can purchase M4 SSDs.

    Thank you that is very helpful!

    I've been looking at the Crucial 256GB M4 SATAIII drive will this matter if my interface isn't SATAIII. I'm thinking in the future if I buy the M4 which is better spec'ed than the V4 then I can put the M4 in a USB3 enclosure if something happens to my macbook so I will still get a performance increase.
