    Just got a 2006 MacBook Pro in very good condition and while I have absolutely no idea what I'll do with it I was still wondering whether it would benefit from an SSD.
    I mean what do you think the useable life is of a 15" 2006 Core Duo?
    It needs a battery but everything else seems to be working just fine.

    SSD's do greatly perk up those machines, but all versions of Mac OS X it can run are no longer being updated.

    It would, but it's totally not worth it considering that:

    1. It's so old.
    2. It cannot run any versions of OS X that are currently still supported by Apple.
