    Hi everybody!

    Could someone please confirm me that these pieces of hardware will be ok with my Macbook Pro 13' mid 2010 (Core 2 duo 2.66 cpu)?

    The ssd is going to the cd drive and the RAM is 16GB because it's been confirmed that my version actually supports it but I don't actually know if this one suits.

    My memory right now:

    Thanks a lot!

    Yes, wether it's wort spending that money on a 6 year old laptop is questionable though.

    I would put the SSD in the main drive slot and the other drive in the optibay.

    There is one disadvantage for the hard drive in the optibay - the sudden motion sensor, which shuts down the hard drive in the event of a fall, does not function through the optical bay. Not a lot of risk there, but some might like to avoid it anyway, so preferred could be SSD in the optibay, spinning drive remains in the native drive slot.

    Yes, yes and yes.

    I would put the SSD in the optical bay and only swap them around if the optical bay gives errors, problems or doesn't negotiate a sensible speed (think yours will be SATA2 on both). That way you get the SMS protection if possible.

    I have this computer and installed SSD from OWC.

    They are picky with ram. My first set was bad.

    Big improvement from 4-8, 8-16 a lot less but I know I'm maxed out. I can run few vms on it.

    As far as boot time it takes 20 seconds from pressing power to login screen. More ram - longer memory check at boot.

    This machine now feels really snappy.
