    Upgrade it to 8 GB RAM and put an SSD or two into it.

    Seriously.

    I have a 2009 2.16 black model and the only thing you can do with these (which is better than you can with new models), is very easily change Ram and the HD.

    I have a 1GB HD in mine. It's does not "fly" but it glides about ok.... :)

    ----------

    It is not a Pro, so I think (like my non-pro of it's age) the maximum ram is 4GB and not 8GB?

    Mine is 2 x 2GB max.

    So, sounds like the OP has it maxed already with RAM

    This Macbook can handle 8GB ram.

    As simsaladimbamba said.

    The best way to make it "fly" is upgrading Ram to 8GB and change HDD with SSD.

    I have the exact same Macbook, I added a SSD and 16G ram.

    Good luck.

    I think it isn't worth to put 16GB (I didn't even know that it is possible).

    Average user, sure, over kill but, good to have for power users. :)

    Not that I am a power users but, I like to give my Windows (VMWare Fusion) 8Gs of ram and 1 CPU.

    Weird. For "power users" in retina 8GB is enough... :)

    I'm not a rich power user but, I do agree. :)

    And it helps with the C2D. :)

    She is in very good condtion, the former owner only used her to check e-mail on the summer vacations, so machine stayed in the box rest of the time. More or less brand new, still shiny. I paid 120$ for her.
