Hi guys .... Please be nice, I am TOTAL newbie to the world of Macs !!! A friend has just given me an old macbook. It is an early 2008 unibody one. the processor is 2.1 Intel Core Duo 2 and it has 4 gig of RAM installed. Having messed about with, and dismantled many a windows PC, I am contemplating putting an SSD drive in. Firstly, will this improve the performance greatly ? Next, I have scouted about for a bit, reading various forums about how to install a new SSD drive. The majority of the posts I have read, direct me to this tutorial ....... http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/MacBook+Core+2+Duo+Hard+Drive+Replacement/514#s2427 Is it really as simple as that? As in when i remove the old HDD, does the same cable plug into the SSD or do i need to do more than this, like change cables etc? I would be connecting the SSD to the macbook initially to clone the drive before swapping any drives over. I hope this all makes sense - as stated, its all very new to me, but something I'd like to have a potter about with. I am in the UK for anyone advising parts, etc to buy. Thanks in advance!!! Anth.
