    Hi there,

    I just got my sisters old 13" macbook pro from 2009. I have already gotten it a new drive but was considering if there would be a way to speed it up even more.

    Can you mount a SD-card and stripe the drive with the internal drive? If not as a Raid 0 maybe a fusion drive?

    I wouldn't try that.

    If the card becomes marginal, if the contacts become marginal, the RAID goes "POOF!" and I predict that your sister is going to be one VERY unhappy girl.

    If you had really wanted speed, you should have put an SSD into the MacBook.

    Makes all the difference in the world...

    Haha. Ok.

    Nah I got it for myself now and wanted to use it as my on the fly laptop. I guess I can use it as a scratch drive for editing still though.

    Also I do have a SSD in it already, I guess that will not improve the speed then...
