So my I'm planning to upgrade my mother-in-law's macbook pro. She has a 2009 and she's complaining about it slowing down drastically. She's only used about 64GB of space and she's considering selling it and buying a new one. Thing is, she can't afford to do that so I told her if she upgrades the memory and/or adds a solid state drive, that computer would fly again and faster than ever. She's too cheap to get a solid state drive and said to just upgrade the memory. Well Christmas is coming up and I'm going to upgrade her laptop to a solid state drive for her. My question is how cheap can i find a 120gb or better SSD? I say 120 because she has a 128gb hard drive in there now and it just isn't anywhere near fill. I also replaced her hard drive recently when it crashed and wouldn't boot. Put the same type of drive in, but I want to upgrade. Also the 2012 macbook pro I asked about is my wife's system I want to upgrade as well, I want to know if anyone can find an ssd that will work well at a decent price in the 256+ gig range? Any other advice? Aside from the hard drive swap, I have never upgraded an apple product.
