    I don't mean to discourage you, but threads which don't offer anything informative or a talking point for discussion probably wont be too popular.

    Nice. Yeah, SSDs are the best thing to happen to computers in a long time. You can throw one of those into a 4 year old computer and bring new life to it. I think it makes much more of a difference in Windows PCs and laptops than it does on Macs. Windows has zillions of small files all over the place and benefits a lot from the SSD. I always found Macs to run generally well with crappy hard drives. Probably why they still sell them with 5400 RPM drives.

    I recently did the same thing with my new mid 2012 cMPB, although I only purchased the base model with the i5, and I went with a 256GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD.

    I didn't use the computer for too long under the original 4MB or RAM and 5200 RPM hard drive configuration. That said, the difference in performance before vs. after the upgrades was just incredible.

    I don't run a lot of applications that require significant processor and or GPU power, so I'm thinking I'm all set for the next 3-4 years with no problems :D

    My first computer had 256KB of RAM. It was so much quicker once we upgraded it to 640KB.

    Yeah, that was definitely a computer Freudian slip :D

    That said, I did upgrade the RAM as well on my computer from 4GB to 16GB :p
