Best performance upgrades for MacBook Pro 2012 500gb
I run Ableton Live software and need the portability of a laptop.
What are the best upgrades I can do for this MacBook Pro? I already upgraded RAM to 16 GB and now I'm wondering if a SSD upgrade is a good ideal with a 1TB Crucial mx300 2.5" SATA 6 Gb/s SSD
Should I also replace the optical drive with a Seagate 2 TB Barracuda SATA 6 Gb/s 128MB Cache 2.5" HD?
I also use a 1TB external dive to store my iTunes and samples. I'm looking to maximize system performance what is the best route?
Is it best to do both or just 1 or is it better to get a caddy and move the stock SSD to that and take out the optical drive?
P.S. I'm just looking to maximize performance. So SSD upgrade and I was thinking Of getting a case for the OEM SSD and use it as an extra external.
Is this a good question?
