Hey All, It's been a looong time since I've posted on these forums, it's good to be back though! I have just dug out my old white MacBook- specs are as follows: 1.83GHz Core Duo 1.25GB RAM 60GB 5400RPM HDD Put simply, this thing is really starting to chug! Modern websites such as eBuyer, engadget etc cause the HD to go crazy and it's generally pretty slow, even when doing 'simple' things like making powerpoint presentations. The hard drive isn't particularly full (36GB available) and I'm running Snow Leopard (10.6.5). I have a little bit of cash and I'm thinking of upgrading the hard drive to a solid state flash, as well as putting in a bit more RAM. I was just wondering if anyone with these specs has put a SSD in their machines? I'm reluctant to drop £70+ of an SSD if it's just the age of the computer (ie. the CPU, bus etc) that's stopping this thing from being a little quicker. Also, what is the maximum amount of RAM this thing can support? Many thanks for your help! Simon EDIT- Probably worth mentioning I have run Onyx to repair permissions, clear cache's etc in an attempt to speed it up...no luck!
