Hi, I have the June 2009 Model (received it 12/09) of 13" MBP. 2.26 GHz C2D 2GB of RAM 160GB HDD. Lately, my harddrive has been performing rather badly, my computer has been beach balling a lot lately. My drive sometimes is reading and writing for long periods of time, with not much activity on my part. I think this may have to do with the fact that I'm approaching capacity; I have 17.76 GB left on my 160GB drive, and I'm deleting things all the time. At my lowest point I believe I had 13 GB free. My 2GB of RAM gets filled VERY quickly. Now, I think more RAM and an SSD would help. I want to keep this computer for another 2-3 years. Right now, I can only upgrade to either 8GB of RAM or a 256 GB SSD. One, but not both. Which one would be more beneficial and why? On one hand, I'm running out of space and 256 GB would do it, and would solve a lot of the problems of the HDD being slow. On the other hand, I'd still have 2GB of RAM, which isn't enough for my needs, however, the need for more RAM may be negated with the SSD. Discuss. Thanks.
