If you decide to replace the drive, I would go with a Seagate SSHD 1 or 2 TB. This will give you a dramatic perceived speed increase.

You may have temperature sensor visor and run away fan if your original drive is other than a seagate. You will need (at minimum) Apple part # 922-9216 to prevent it.
