HDD to SSD upgrade
I have a Mid 2012 13" MacBook Pro (non retina) i7/8GB RAM /750 GB 5400 HDD.
I need to upgrade it with an SSD to speed it up. I have couple of questions before doing it by my self.
- I've read couple of articles about SSD, What is the best SSD (256 or 512GB) for this model? (samsung/crucial/OCZ/OWC or ... (not too expensive)
- What is the requirements?
- In some sources I read about Trim and firmware update. I need more info about these.
- if I want to use my original HDD as external drive, how to remove the existing operating system without loosing my data?
Is this a good question?
