My wife's Macbook was slow and the hard drive had issues. She didn't need a huge amount of drive space so I decided to go with a SSD. Maxed out the memory while I was at it.
Easy as can be. Online guide was perfect and well illustrated. The computer now works like a champ and the speed is off the charts. She is ecstatically happy, which makes me happy... you know the adage.
If you want speed, that is the way to go... Make sure you have the small phillips head screw driver. Easy as can be.
