I have a Late 2011 MacBook Pro. Last year I replaced the HDD with a SSD. It made a huge difference in the performance. Feels like a whole new laptop.

So you put a $150 drive into a $150 laptop?

But the $150 SSD can be pulled out of that laptop and put into another machine, or into an external-drive case.

(The HDD that was in my old laptop is now in an external-drive case. The SSD that I replaced it with got moved into my new laptop, alongside the smaller - in both capacity and physical dimensions - SSD that was preinstalled. Oh, also the RAM from my old laptop got moved, so my new one has 12G RAM. Swap file? What for?)
