Is it possible to upgrade the HDD to a SSD drive?
I recently brought a new 13" macbook pro, model no-A1278. It shipped with a 320 GB (5200 RPM) HDD. Can i upgrade it to a SSD drive ?
yes you can. you dont need a special connector or anything. any standard sata 2.5" ssd drive work natively. the corsair realSSD is the best i've seen, since its a sata-III drive, and your shiny new macbook pro just happens to ship with a sata-III port! those are expensive though, and honestly, in real life situations, you wont notice the speed difference between it and say, a cheapo kingston SSDNow, which you can probably find on ebay or amazon for like $150 (128gb)
