I am looking to upgrading my Macbook Pro 2009 2.53 GHz processor and 8GB RAM.

The planned upgrade this time is an SSD.


I think I want a 120-128GB SSD. It will fit the Lion OS and applications and some application content as well. May be my photos and Aperture and my documents folder which I access the most frequently.


Question I have and one that I have not managed to answer after some research even, is that SSD is the best one for the Mac. And what SSD is the best bang for the buck.


TRIM - I gathered from my research that this is a good capability to have, but Mac OS does not support it natively.


I am not eager to do anything that tinkers with the OS settings etc. Opening the machine and installing this in place of the CD ROM will be enough of an adventure for me


Will appreciate advice. Thank you!

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.7)
