Hi I'm the proud owner of a late 2008 MacBook core 2 duo 2.4ghz with 4gb of RAM (upgraded myself from 2gb just over a year ago) Running snow leopard. I've noticed recently that its begun to slow down a lot - this may be due to the fact that the HDD has just 16gb left of 250gb. I've had a bit of a clean out but to be honest I think I just need more space. My question therefore is how easy is it to upgrade the HD in this model MacBook? Also would I be able to go for a Solid state drive and would this offer any performance improvements over standard 2.5" drive? I'd quite like to be able to upgrade to Mavericks and want to make sure that I've given my beloved MacBook the very best chance of running it as this will most likely be the last time it's supported and I hate to say it but ill probably need to consider upgrading to a newer model as the RAM and hard driver are the last hope for squeezing any performance improvements out of the aging model. Grateful if someone could get back to me on the above and with any other recommendations on how i can improve performance as I'm keen to eek as much life out of this MacBook before I'm forced to upgrade!!
