My Macbook pro 15-inch Mid 2010, config details as follows:

Processor 2.66 Ghz Intel Core I&7
Memory 8GB 1067 Mhz DDR3
Software OS X Lion 10.7.5 (11G63b).

Currently, I have CRUCIAL M4 256GB. I Left with only 80GB. But I would like to install, windows with VS2012 Ultimate version with TFS, as I want to do some work on windows too. I need larger capacity SSD drive.

Kindly suggest an SSD of larger capacity like 480, 512 GB etc (I need the best and compatible with my 15-inch, Mid 2010 2.66ghz with 8GB ram MBP).

Its already 3 years, Is it worth sell this off and buy a new MBP Notebook.

Thanks and regards

I have the exact same MBP as you. Mid 2010 15" i7 and I upgraded the ram to 8GB. I ordered the Samsung 840 500GB SSD. It can be found at Adorama for $325. Search it on this forum and you'll find lots of positive reviews.

I would think hard about putting a big SSD in a 2010 machine. You'll be limited to SATA II speeds and big SSDs are expensive. You might want to consider a hybrid for this application.

I recommend the Crucial M4 or the Samsung 840. I have had great experiences with both!

A 250 GB Samsung 840 should be a good choice, regarding price, performance and reliability.

I got the same MBP and used to have lots of freezes and problems with the M4. Now I got a Samsung 830 which is faster and solid in all respects.

Go for a Samsung 840. It is cheap and solid. Performs well at high capacities.
