So I'm currently on a 13" MBP from 2010, its all standard. 2.4ghz C2D and 4GB RAM all with a 250gb HDD. Lately been getting random turn offs and extreme slowdowns, like EXTREME. Last night it reset itself and took around 5 mins to turn back on. I'm worrying it could be a drive failure, so I've backed up etc but here are my options. 1, get a replacement HDD to keep it going for a little longer, and possibly get a new 13/15 cMBP next year around september, being a uni student this would be awesome. 2, same as above but a rMBP, this would be even better but still considering. 3, Just get a new SSD, preferably Samsung 830, boost the RAM up to 8GB, and live with the C2D for another 2 years or so. Main issue is its a Core2Duo. And its not like its slow, but its outdated. I do music technology for my degree, this year the C2D will be fine, I'm using a maximum of around 10 tracks. But next year I'm gonna be hitting 30/40, and I don't know how the C2D will cope, whats the recommendation here? Or at least, whats your views on the C2D, if anyones used it with Logic/Pro Tools/Reason etc. Thanks Guys!
