I had this idea the other day and was wondering if anyone has done it / thinks it will work. Basically I own a 2008 macbook white that, logically, has been running a bit slow over the past little while.It works but faster would be great. It only has a 160GB hard drive so I don't care much about getting a bunch of space. What I'm considering is popping in a 120GB SSD and 6GB of RAM. I might have to go with just 4GB but OWC says it can hold 6GB so I figure why not cap it out? My question is, can this be done? Can the old MacBooks handle SSD's without any issues? I know my old C2D processor would still be holding me down but my iMac is the workhorse, I just want the mobile unit (my macbook) to be faster. Suggestions? SSD or not? 4GB of RAM vs. 6GB? I know I can put the stuff in, that's not a problem. What I need to know is if the system can handle and make use of that kind of speed. Basically, can I turn it into a heavier air with a weak processor?
