My fiancee currently has an early 2011 13in MBP. It has a 2.3ghz i5 processor and 4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 ram. She got it new in 2011 so it's about 4 years old. She's been complaining recently that it's not as quick as it was when she got it. Considering that' it's getting old we were debating whether or not we should go ahead and replace it when the new MBP comes out later this year, or possibly even a MBA. However, I started wondering if putting in another 4 GB of ram and possibly a SSD drive would make it quick enough to get by with it for another year or so. She doesn't do anything too intensive with her laptop. Just microsoft office, google chrome, itunes, etc. She's not using anything like Logic or Photoshop. She really just wants things to load quickly and to be able to keep multiple applications open without them slowing down. So what would be the smarter course of action? And if we do ugrade the ram and put in a SSD would it increase the resale value of her current MBP when we do eventually get her a new one? Thanks for the help!
