im in the same boat, looking to upgrade the performance of my mbp (mid 2010, core 2 duo 2.4 GHz, 13 inch, 4 gb ram).
i have a decent amount of money to spend (like 600-700 bucks) so i guess i should upgrade my RAM. i looked at the cheaper alternatives to buying it straight from apple, but can i have them switch out the ram if i dont buy it drectly from them? also can you guys point out some good places to buy the ram?
a new hdd would be the next step. whats a good internal hdd? looking for something 256gb or more.
changing the processor isnt an option cuz apple solders all their processors.
what other ways can i upgrade my mac?
