My current machine has been serving me well for a year now. I bought it in the year 2010 February, three weeks before the 2010 March upgrade. Just a week ago, I've upgraded my Macbook Pro 13" from 2GB to 8GB, and it's been blazing fast. I'm a casual user, doing a lot of presentation, using Motion 5 for graphics, FCP X for DVD/Movie making, etc. Now, I want to ask you, preferably people who've dealt with this before, which of the following choices is the best: 1) Sell and upgrade. I still haven't got a buyer yet, but if I was to sell my current machine, I could use the money that I saved up to buy the current MBP 13". Selling in Japan is pretty hard. The lowest I can go is 700$, since I've saved up around $300. 2) Get Seagate Momentus XT. I've heard good reviews, experience, and positive feedbacks in this forum, and I'm considering to get it if it's worth the upgrade since I won't have to spend as much money if I was to get the SSD. Plus, I'm not looking for SSD speed. Anything what will make my computer snappier. Maybe sell my computer later with this Hybrid HDD before the redesign of the MBPs. 3) Get an SSD. IMO, it's pretty expensive per GB, considering that I could get the Momentus XT and get the speed that I want. Plus, the capacity of SSD isn't really what I'm looking for. However, I've heard it will increase my computer's resell value. I'm not willing to install Optibay, because it will cost addutuibak $130 for me to ship it from states to Japan. Maybe sell my computer later with this SSD before the redesign of the MBPs. Thanks in advance.
