Alright. First time posting anything here, so lets see how it works. Im thinking of a few different upgrades to my early 2011, 13 inch macbook pro. The first is the RAM. I read here that the early 2011 couldn't handle more than 8gb RAM. But according to this it can manage 16gb RAM. Which is right? if 16gb RAM can actually be installed and used, then would this work? If 16gb cant work, and i had to stick to an 8gb RAM upgrade, then would this work? As far as upgrading the hard drive, and optical drive, what would you guys recommend? What is the difference between a solid state drive and an internal hard drive? an SSD and an SSHD? I found this and this, and was wondering which was better? If I wanted to beef the heck out of my mac, would you recommend an upgrade to RAM, the Hard drive, and the Optical drive? Thanks for any help you want to give!
