    In Jan 2008 I bought 2 of the mid 2007 and a just released time capsule 500G.

    Since then I have upgraded both my wife's and mine to 4g of ram and the latest of OSX [10.9.2].

    These are basic use machines, mail, browsing, wife's artist work and basic photo. Me, same except for business/spreadsheet, about the same. Never had an issue, period, until some recent beach balls with 10.9.2.

    I just got a ridiculous deal on a new 21.5 2.7 iris pro machine and 2TB TC
    . My wife just wants a little more speed from her's.

    So mine is available for upgrade and then to give the wife. Spec's 4gb 667 DDR2 sdram, ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro 256 MB.

    Here's the challenge. Budget $400-500. What do you recommend for performance and reliability continuance.

    - 258 SSD internal
    - 6gb ram conversion
    - anything else????????

    Since its going to be opened up anyway...... Or sell it and ???

    Thanks

    The SSD is going to make a huge difference.

    Thanks for the reply and yes the SSD is number one on the list. Not being a techie type, was wondering if you are opening it up, what else can/should you do?

    Hmm....you could upgrade the RAM as well and clear out dust gathering inside :D
