Thinking of installing a solid state disk (SSD)? Go for it – I doubt you’ll regret the investment.

I finally took the plunge and replaced the standard hard drive in my late 2008 MacBook Pro with a solid state disk – a 256GB Crucial M4.

What a transformation! If you’re trying to decide whether to do something similar then take a look at the video below, which shows the Mac booting up and logging in both before and after the transplant.

The machine is now much, much quicker in daily use, a little quieter, cooler, and has better battery life – what more could you ask for circa £240?
