Hi there, I'm new. So sorry if this has been asked. I'm pretty clued up when it comes to I.T but just wanted to make sure. My Early 2011 Macbook is slowing up a little now. Its the base spec model, 2.3ghz i5, 4gb of ram. I will be replacing this computer at the end of the year early 2014 as I wan't to give it to my sister so she can have a computer to use whilst at university. But for now it's still mine. SSD's have dropped recently, and I plan to upgrade two things. 4GB of Ram - move to 8GB's of Ram. 320GB HDD - Move to 256 or 512gb SSD. Now, here's my question, If I make a back up of my mac like I do with Time Machine, can I just copy everything back over? What is the best way to smoothly convert? When I first got my mac, it was a refurb, the disc drive was broken and apple replaced it with a brand new one, before the refurbished model went i backed it up and then when the new one came I set it up from a back up of the old one? Can I do this with the SSD? Cheers. Noah.
