The best upgrade you can get for your notebook.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crucial CT256M4SSD2CCA 256GB M4 SATA III 6Gb/s MLC 2.5 Inch Internal SSD with Data Transfer Kit (Personal Computers)Crucial havent skimped in the production of the M4 and it has been well reviewed for excellent performance and consistency between drives; and more importantly has good support from a solid company. I can't remember the last time I bought a mechanical hard disk and it came in a box. That is partly because the M4 comes with some accessories to help you on your way; first up a USB cable that turns your new / old drives into a USB (2) external disks and a CD that will help you migrate to the new drive. Instructions to install a new hard disk into your notebook are likely a quick google/bing search away. If you can use a screwdriver with a little bit of care you will be able to fit this to your computer. Though you may need some Torx screwdrivers if they aren't already in your toolkit if your manufacturer (as Apple do) use them somewhere.
I elected to do a completely fresh install; as I had the disks I required and generally you get a quicker machine from a fresh install. If that is too much Crucial do provide a transfer disk and others have reported it works just fine. The proof of the pudding is once its installed the SSD reduces application loading times on my mac to blinks of your eye and you can run more applications at once as you don't notice the time your computer used to spend writing memory to disk. The USB cable also powers my original hard drive so I still have access to the data thats on it when i need it; though i wouldn't use an unprotected disk outside of a 2.5 SATA TO USB CADDY. (Others are available.)
