I've done some searching, and I wasn't able to find any threads asking a similar question. I've been tossing the idea around of getting an SSD for my 2010 MBP. The speed would definitely be very nice, and a little bit of extra battery life wouldn't hurt. I'm a college student studying computer science, so most of my workload involves programming but I multi-task quite a bit (15 tabs open plus a reference PDF, while working on projects). I have a 750gb Momentus XT SSHD, and it's decent, but I don't see a ton of benefit from the caching SSD portion of the drive. I'm ultimately looking at a Samsung 840, since they seem to have stellar reviews and they slot in pretty cheap as well. What are some people's experiences with SSDs in these older machines that only have SATAII and can't take advantage of the full speed of the drive? Is it worth upgrading to get a few more years out of this machine?
