I’m sorry WHAT? You’re too lazy to install RAM which takes approximately 5 minutes at the most to install, yet you’re willing to spend more time installing an SSD?
Let me explain to you, dear readers, how to install RAM and a replacement hard drive in a MacBook Pro:
- Unscrew the 10 screws on the bottom casing and lift off the casing
- pop out the 2x 2Gb chips
- insert 2x 4Gb chips
- replace casing and screws
Hard Drive (either conventional or SSD, makes no difference)
- unscrew the 10 screws on the bottom casing and lift off the casing
- unscrew the 2 screws holding the bracket in place and lift off bracket
- lift up the hard drive and disconnect it from the connector
- unscrew the 4 housing screws and lift off the tab on the hard drive
- attach the screws and the tab to the new drive
- connect the drive and re-seat it
- screw in the bracket
- replace the casing and screws
- reinstall OS X Lion from the Recovery Partition which you would have copied to a USB stick from the original drive
Now, which do you think is quicker?
Not to mention that he paid $400 for 8Gb RAM. I paid a fraction of that for 8Gb of 1333Mhz DDR3, the RAM used in the current line up of MacBook Pros.
Rud3bwoy, you’re still a fool.
