MacBook 13-inch, Late 2008 2.1GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 2GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM 120GB SATA Disk OS X Lion (10.7.5) Although my MacBook is getting old, I would like it to last around another 2 years. The battery had to be replaced recently, as the original had reached nearly 1200 cycles and would only last around 30 minutes under an low workload. I would like to upgrade some of the hardware on the computer to give it a new lease of life and an increase in speed. After some research on the internet, I have decided to spend up to £100 on either RAM or a SSD. Storage is not an issue as I have an external 1TB hard drive which I use to store files and back-up to. This means that a 120GB SSD would be adequate. The other option is an upgrade to 4GB (2x2GB) of RAM (I believe this is the maximum Apple recommend for this MacBook). Most of the time the MacBook is used for browsing the internet on Safari, and listening to music on iTunes. The computer handles this well, however when I open an iWork application for school work it starts to struggle. Which would be the most effective solution?
