So I've got a mid-2009 MacBook Pro 13". Integrated GPU so not a games machine but fast enough for doing .Net development in VMs. I love the little thing and wanted to give it a Christmas present so thought I'd mod it up a bit and give it a boost.
I'm thinking of swapping out the stock 5400rpm HD with a faster drive (e.g. one of these new-fangled hybrid laptop drives with 4GB RAM that spin at 7200rpm) but was wondering if any of you had tried or knew of anything else I could change/upgrade/mod to squeeze more out of my laptop. Before you answer though, please be aware that I'm not sure I can run to putting in the 8GB of RAM Apple have suggested :-(
EDIT: Is it true you can swap out the DVD burner for another drive?
Thanks in advance.
