How can install a Samsung 970 EVO into a MacBook Pro 2012?
I purchased a Mid 2012 MacBook Pro on eBay last week because of the ability to upgrade hardware on it. I purchased 16 GB memory, and a 500 GB Samsung 860 EVO SSD.
I’m nearly out of disk space after re-installing of OS-X, and an upgrade to Mojave, etc.. I was searching online and I read I can add another drive in place of the CD drive. Which seems perfect since I have an Apple USB superdrive already.
I searched Amazon for another Samsung SSD, and found a Samsung 970 EVO. One person said: “Super fast on Mac Pro 2010!” So I made an impulsive purchase after seeing that.
What adapter will I need in order to connect this into my mid 2012 MacBook Pro?
I have the 13" and I already have a Samsung 860 EVO, it’s the drive I'm using right now.
I was really impressed with the 860, and when I saw the numbers being 7 times faster in some places with the 970, I need to have it!
Plus, I needed more disk space.
