    Hey guys, can you educate me on upgrade options for my 17in MBP? I have already upgraded the ram to 16gb and have a brand new logic board from Apple.

    I would like to put in a 1gb SSD drive and find a way to get a USB 3.0 option. Can someone point me in the right direction on what to buy?

    Thank you in advance

    Could I use the express card slot to get USB 3.0?

    Wow I didn't even know the 17 inch had an ExpressCard slot! Yeah I guess, just doing a few searches there seems to be some reliability issues with them but they're much cheaper than a Thunderbolt adapter so I guess it's worth a go.
