My Late 08 Aluminum MacBook is blazing fast now! Startup takes less than half the time it took with the original hard drive. Programs launch crazy fast. iTunes cover flow actually "flows." iPhoto doesn't slow down. Time Machine animations actually work. Spotlight is fast like Google Instant Search, now. Instructions: (1) Remove original HD. (2) Remove mounting screws (4 total) on original HD (with T6 torx screwdriver). (3) Attach mounting screws to SSD and install. (4) Close up your MacBook. (5) Turn on your MacBook and insert Mac OS X Install DVD and hold "c" key. Apple logo will come up. (If you get a blinking folder with a "?," instead, leave DVD in SuperDrive and press the power button to turn off. Press the power button again and hold the "c" key.) (6) Select language. When you arrive at the install screen, go to "Disk Utility" in the "Utilities" menu on the menu bar. (7) Click on the SSD and select "Erase" tab. Select "Mac OS X Extended (Journaled)" and erase. (I named the SSD "Macintosh HD," the default name.) (8) Exit "Disk Utility" and install Mac OS X. You can do a clean install or restore from a Time Machine backup. If you want to speed up your old computer or even your new computer, I definitely recommend using this drive. This is one of the fastest drives you can buy. You won't regret it. Remember: RAM basically determines how many programs you can run at once. Your hard drive determines how fast the OS starts, how fast programs start, and how fast programs with functions relying on the hard drive (i.e. iTunes), run.

Wow! My old computer boots in 20 seconds.

by Dave on 1/11/2011

The cheapest way to upgrade your computer. This drive is blazing fast in read/write speeds. At first I was a little suspect as to all the hype surrounding SSD's but this old computer guy was amazed at the improvement of the overall performance of my computer now that this drive is installed. I did much research and found the OCZ Vertex 2 2.5" 60GB SATA II MLC Performance Series Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)to be one of the fastest SSD's you could buy. I am buying another one to speed up my laptop. You won't believe how fast programs load and run. Simply put buy one and you will be amazed.

Product Overview

Based on a cutting-edge new architecture, Vertex 2 Solid State Drives deliver unprecedented performance while maintaining an affordable storage solution for early adopters looking to update their systems with the latest technology. OCZ designed the Vertex 2 to excel in both sequential and random read/write rates to take your PC or notebook productivity to the next level, featuring superb 4KB random writes up to 50,000 IOPS to give a performance edge over the previous generation. Using the latest controller technology, Vertex 2 not only provides a faster, more responsive PC experience, but promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives. Built with SATA 3Gb/s, the Vertex 2 Series easily integrates into today’s mobile and desktop platforms and features TRIM support to optimize performance over the drive’s lifespan as the ultimate Windows 7 notebook or desktop upgrade.

SSD Storage Technology
Unlike traditional hard disk drives, SSDs have no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool, highly reliable storage solution that also offers faster application loading and system responsiveness. And for laptops and netbooks, the lower power needs of SSD’s translate to extended battery life. Higher performance with more durability means you can be truly mobile with confidence.

Better Performance
Built with MLC NAND flash and the latest generation SandForce SF1200 controller featuring award winning DuraClass Technology, the OCZ Vertex 2 60GB SSD delivers industry-leading SSD reliability, performance, and power efficiency, with maximum read speed up to 285 MB/s and maximum write speed up to 275 MB/s, plus incredible random 4K write performance of 50,000 IOPS.

TRIM Support
The OCZ Vertex 2 Series SSD’s offer native TRIM support than can be enabled in Windows 7. Designed to maintain the performance of SSD at an optimal level over the lifetime of the drive, TRIM functions by actively deleting invalid data from the SSD’s memory cells to ensure that write operations perform at full speed. Since a memory block must be erased before it can be re-programmed, TRIM improves performance by pro-actively erasing pages containing invalid data, allowing the SSD to write new data without first having to perform a time-consuming erase command.

2.5" to 3.5" Adapter Included
The OCZ Vertex 2 Series is specifically designed for notebook computers coming in a 2.5-inch hard drive form factor. In addition, the installation kit includes a 2.5" to 3.5" bracket for matching with 3.5” drive bay to extend the storage of your desktop computer.
