Which SSD drive to install in the MacBook Pro 13 (mid 2012)?
I have recently (read: 3 days ago) bought my first Mac - MBP 13", 2.5 GHz version. I want to upgrade it to 512 SSD Drive, but the Apple authorised shops (I'm in Czech Republic, Apple has only a web-store) that are willing to provide - and change - the HDD to SSD are very expensive (around 800€, approx. $970). Therefore, I have decided to do it myself. And although I have managed to find online guides for changing the disk (playing with the screws etc.) it is nowhere specified what disk exactly does it have to be.
What are the SSD specs that I should be aware of? Size, SATA/ATA/... Are there any SSD disks you would recommend? (I am not much of a "hardware" guy - I don't generally like to mess around with hardware, although I am fairly capable of playing around with software stuff, so please write it idiot-proof, okay?
Thanks Machead3, that is what I needed!
From the Early 2011 MacBook Pro model on are equipped with 6.0 Gb/s SATA 3.0 Remember to disconnect the power, battery and let it cool before working on the unit. You'll want a drive (or adapter) that fits into the 2.5" holder.
