Answer to: Recommended SSD for MacBook 2008Yes, the Samsung 840 Pro mentioned above will work perfectly fine. There are no jumpers to fiddle with. The current Samsung SSD models don't have jumpers at all, but are compatible with all three SATA versions. I do agree that there are cheaper alternatives that won't make any performance difference on this old Macbook, for example the Samsung 840 (without "Pro") or even a Samsung 830 - if you can still fine one. As for current models, the Samsung 840 Evo is also slightly cheaper than a 840 Pro.
