Replace optical drive with ssd
I know this subject has been discussed, but I would like to find the proper tutorial for the macbook pro A1226.
Different models have their own here but not mine.
Is there anything I should know/be concerned about ? Or is there a model that is close enough to the one I got ?
By the way, I've been told that in such a case (keeping the old hdd and adding a ssd) the HHD drive should replace the optical drive, and the SSD should be put where the HDD was, so the performances will be better.
Is that true ?
Thanks in advance !
A little time went by, but here I come back to give a feedback..
So I put the old drive where the optical drive should be, and installed a SSD instead. Sure, I don't use all of the SSD capacities but it surely gave this mac book pro a boost, plus additional storage.
If you have the proper tools work with, I would say all that process was easy. Before opening it, I wasn't so sure how I would remove the optical drive, etc. as I could not find any tutorial for the model I own, but it went just fine as there isn't so much big differences between two similar models.
Sure, I could enjoy a new laptop with better performances, etc. but with 220-230€, I was able to install a smoothly running Mavericks and all the apps I need run also more flowing. And learn one thing or two in the process...
Thanks for your help guys.
Is this a good question?
