MBP 2008 5,1 Late October *I need a Really Good SSD for an upgrade. OWC (macsales) is telling me the only SSD for this model is OWC (240GB or 120GB or 480GB)) Mercury Electra 3G SSD 2.5" Serial-ATA 7mm Solid State Drive. In 2011 I took this MBP 2008 in for repair and the mother board needed replaced. I have no issues now except needing or wanting this puppy to run the fastest i can get it to. I did install OWC 8GB of RAM into this machine although apple says it can only take 6GB RAM. OWC said it can take 8GB. I need thoughts on that as well. Did i get taken by OWC, is there a way to know if I am really getting the benefit of the 8GB Ram? *Can someone explain SATA 1, 2 & 3 to me. How do I know which SATA this drive is by (OWC 240GB Mercury Electra 3G SSD 2.5" Serial-ATA 7mm Solid State Drive) their site and how do i find out what SATA i have in the MBP 2008 5,1 Late? *They told me that the 6G would not work, because it would slow down the performance to much so my only choice is the 3G. What about other brands of SSD? *Anyone know how to answer this? Thanks. Daniel PS: i bought new MBPR2013 10,1 Early & iMac2012 Late my new MBPR is a beast.
