I am sure this question has been asked probably a thousand times here. Mine is probably a bit diff. Lets see.. I have a MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2.4Ghz, Late 2007 model) with 1.5Gb/s SATA interface. Right now I am using a WD Scorpio Black 7200RPM 320GB 16MB Cache 3.0Gb/s but running @ 1.5Gb/s due to the interface architecture. My question is, will I see a performance boost if I upgrade to an SSD? I am planning to get a new MacBook Pro in 2012, so should I shell out $ for an SSD for my current one or save up that $ for the 2012 MBP + SSD? This is what I do on my MacBook Pro 1) Run Windows on Parallels to develop C#, C++ apps in Visual Studio (I always have my Windows running) 2) Develop Java apps on Eclipse 3) Work with Adobe LightRoom, and CS5 apps for image editing. 4) Final Cut Pro Editing 5) Productivity apps. It is basically my mobile workstation. Love to hear your comments.
