    Hi, i have an old MacBook Pro 15" the model is MacBook Pro 5,3.

    I know its an old machine, but right now its really lagging.
    The spec is:
    2.66ghz Intel core 2 Duo
    8 GB Ram DDR3
    320 Sata Disk.

    I've change the ram from 4 to 8 right now, but still its lagging.
    Im thinking of buying a SSD as what my friend suggested.
    Do you think a SSD will solve this lag problems? and if so, do i need a specific SSD for my mac? because i heard that the SSD is special :p

    thank you :apple:

    Far from here

    your Macbook is a Mid-2009 model.

    It does not need a "special SSD" : any 2.5" SSD will work.

    This Mac has a SATA II connexion (3 Gbps), therefore there is no need to buy a "fast" SSD, the "slowest" and cheapest SSD will be fine.

    Example : Crucial BX100.

    A SSD will transform you Macbook Pro.
