    I have a 15" MacBook Pro, a mid 2009 model. Works fine but could do better with an SDD upgrade. I did do a HD upgrade about 3 years ago and had to jumper a couple pins to slow the io of the drive, as it was causing kernel panics at the higher speed. Can my system support an SDD upgrade?

    It's SSD (Solid State Drive) and yep, it does!

    I have a late 2008 with an SSD and it runs great. I even swapped out the cd drive and a have second SSD drive. Best and easiest thing you could do for an older MBP.

    I agree with the other comments. My 2011 MBP got an SSD a couple years ago. Easy upgrade and immediately experienced significant speed boost!
