After months of my wife’s complaints about her 5-year-old 15″ MacBook Pro 3,1 hanging during normal operations, I upgraded the hard drive to an OWC 240GB Mercury Electra 2.5″ 3G SSD and saw an amazing performance increase. I highly recommend adding an SSD to a MacBook Pro or MacBook to regain performance, extending the life of your computer. Please comment if you add an SSD to a MacBook Pro and let us all know your experience.
Adding an SSD to a MacBook Pro for a Remarkable Speed Increase

I started my career at a start-up, Sun Microsystems, and have been at start-ups ever since. Small companies are always short on people giving me the opportunity to travel extensively for both business and pleasure. Two foreign assignments in the UK led to 9+ years living abroad and accelerated the travel my family, and I was able to do. Although I have worked in Asia (including a year working for a Singapore HQ’d company), the Middle East and Africa, most of my foreign experience is in Europe, the CIS, and Russia.
