I've been reading through a lot of threads and wanted to do some upgrades to my MBP. What i have: 13" Mid-2010 MBP 2.4 GHz Intel Core Duo NVIDIA GeForce 320M 256 MB Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 Upgrades I want to do: RAM-right now I have 4GB, and was deciding between the 8GB or 16GB from OCW. I don't really edit videos or anything like that, just a college kid going for my IT degree. This is my everyday and only computer, so i use for everything from school to music to internet and everything else. I originally planned on just doing the 8GB for 100$ from OCW but have been contemplating getting the 16GB instead. Which should i get? SSD- Pretty sure i have SATA 2 right now (says link speed: 3 gigabit). I want to upgrade to at least a 480 since i feel like a 250 is too small. I was looking at samsung 840 EVO SATA III SSD. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147249 Would that be the right one to get? Is there something better? (crucial, etc.)for $250 it sounds like a pretty good deal. Also, where would i get the transfer cord that goes from the computer to the new SSD? Battery-I will be replacing my battery since mine now lasts 2 hours on a full charge. I was just going to grab the one from OCW for 100$. Is there a better/cheaper option or should I just go with that one. Thank you for any advice on what to do!!! Just started school again and want to get my MBP running a bit faster!
