    I've been meaning to upgrade the disk in my laptop for a while now.

    I've been thinking about this for a while with a three year old, but still relatively well-used laptop. I think I'll take the plunge…

    Way cool you did this. Such a nice speed increase. I'm so glad I did this. Almost 2 years ago (for my late 2008 MacBook Pro 15" – which I believe you have the same model)

    What did you do with the older drive?

      Yep, you and I have the exact same model. This drive swap out was actually on my work MBP. I haven't swapped out the drive on my personal MBP yet primarily for capacity reasons. I have so much music & photos that a SSD of adequate size is somewhat cost prohibitive. I keep wanting to do that optical drive replacement project and have two drives. SSD for the OS and apps and then far larger HDD for storage. I think this is the year to do it.
