I have a 2010 15inch MBP with a 500GB I installed myself. I feel like it might be time to update to an SSD of some sort. I feel from personal experience I will need about 120-160GB for my purposes of apps/OS related stuff. My issue is that I am a medical student in the Caribbean and I have somebody coming to visit me within a week. I dont have much time to do the research I always do before a purchase like this and would like to hear from personal experiences of others on what I can do to make sure this impulsive want for SSD is actually fruitful and doesn't leave me in ruins. From what I understand my MBP has SATA2 only so one of these very hyped Vertex 3 drives would be useless. But what I would like to know is what is a well reviewed drive that many have experience with using that will work with a good price point @ 120-60GB? I would also like to know about enclosures, from what I have gathered from there forums there are two types (Optibay and NewModeUS). Which one is better and why? thank to any responses in advance !
