After I found out my 2010 macbook pro supported 16 gb of ram i upgraded it and everything is working fine. Thank you owc. Even though I would likely never use more then 8 gb i figure at the very least 16gb may catch someones eye when it comes time to sell it. I made this post because im unsure if im wasting my time upgrading this machine. specs are 2.66 ghz c2duo 16 gb ram 320m video 750 gb 7200 rpm hard drive I was thinking if i should upgrade it to an ssd or save the money and move on. It doesnt have usb 3.0, it only has 3g SATA. The core 2 duo is really showing its age now that another year has passed. I think the specs are pretty good the way they are, im just unsure if upgrading it any further is sort of a waste. Ive seen some really nice 2011 machines with core i5s for 800. so I dont think i could get that much for this no matter what the upgrade. Would a SSD upgrade be a waste of money with only 3g SATA? should i sell it off and cut my losses?
