I have 2 Questions

 

Firstly,Am thinking of upgrading my macbook pro hard drive...

i have 350Gb...so i read about the SSD but dont know much about it... Does it contain same space with the normal HDD,or those the 128 SSD means 750GB HDD?

 

My second Question is,how can i move all my apps without doing reinstall again...am thinking of using super duper to clone, does anyone have idea if apps are to be reinstall?

Mac OS X (10.5.6)

    128GB SSD is the size of the hard drive.

     

    Using Super Duper would clone your hard drive but since your current HDD is larger than an SSD you might have issues.  If you plan on getting the 750GB you shouldn't have any problems.

    a 128gb SSD has 128gb of storage, and a 750gb HDD has 750 GB of storage.  Big difference in storage capacity.  SSD's are a new technology to the consumer market and are expensive, so a 750gb SSD would be VERY expensive.

    Making a clone of your internal HDD to the new HDD/SDD would work and you would not have to reinstall the apps.you would need an external hard drive enclosure to clone the present internal HDD to the new one.

    Will 750gb fit in 13,3 macbook pro 2011?

     

    Yes, as long as it is a SATA 2.5" that is 9.5mm or less in height.

     

     

    What about the apps? do i have to re-install again or cloning will do this?

     

    If you clone the old drive to the new one you can just swap the drives and you will be fine.
