    Hi, quick question.

    I currently have a old 13" Early 2009 Macbook with 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and 2 GB of ram. It has Mountain Lion installed and its quite slow really and locks up quite a lot.

    Im thinking of upgrading to a Macbook Pro (used one as only want to spend around £600).
    Im wanting to know if I will see much difference?

    The other option is to increase the ram to 4gb and add a bigger HD.

    Also have a iPad 2 and iPhone 4s but im thinking of selling the iPad if I upgrade to a Macbook pro as to be honest, I dont use it much.

    Thanks!

    and SSD and RAM Boost would be nice, and only cost your 200/250.

    I'd do that upgrade, and then save until you can afford a New Machine.

    Or if your not bothered about it being a Laptop, You could get a baseline Mac Mini, sell your laptop and get a monitor and nice keyboard and mouse ect.

    I would go for the CPU+RAM it will feel like a new machine.

    Add RAM & SSD. Save for a used model that is the current generation or 1 year old.
