The battery life on my 2012 13" Pro is starting to become less and less satisfactory for my uses compared to when I first bought it. Initially, I was thinking of selling it and using the money to buy a new Air, but I'm pretty sure that's hardly wise when other options exist. I heard that SSDs dramatically improve performance (which is another reason why I'm considering an SSD), but I've also heard that computers like the Air owe most of their battery longevity to an SSD, so I'm curious as to whether or not it could improve the battery life of my Pro. If anyone could chime in on this, I would really appreciate it. I'm definitely considering an upgrade to an SSD already for improved performance, but if it can also improve my battery, I would definitely make the jump to one! Thanks! Also, just a side question: Can my MacBook support 16GB of RAM? Apple states the maximum is 8GB, but some googling led me to a Crucial support page, and a moderator there stated that 16GB is supported by the 2012 non-Retina Pro.
