MODS: if you think this doesnt belong in this category, let me know. I prefer to post issues with older Macs even intel macs as these guys here are Pros at keeping older machines going. Unless there is an older intel page. As some of you may know i got my hands on a 2009 Macbook Pro 5,5. Currently its chipset is rather ticking me off. I have it loaded up with 4Gb of Ram and a 240GB kingston 300V SSD. The issue is the SSD is being bottlenecked. BADLY. it ran faster in my Macbook 3,1 from 07 with the intel chipset. Here its being kept at just over 100mb read and write thanks to Nvidias MCP79 AHCI Chipset. Thanks Nvidia.. -_- its running on SATA1 as Lightbulbfun confirmed and it kinda sucks. i now use this as my main school machine and i can tell its an improvement over my 3,1 as to software compatibility but office doesnt take a second like it did on the 3,1. Everything still a tad slow. Does anyone have a solution to get this SSD running at a faster speed, or should i just save up for a late 2012 Macbook pro 13'3 and dump it in there?
