Mac Compatible SSD Drives Help Revitalize Aging Apple Computers
San Francisco, CA – Apple computer technology blogger and Mac gadget geek Russell T. Baer aka MacGizmoGuy brings over a quarter-century of Macintosh computing insights and wisdom to Apple computer owners. Recently, He’s built an online resource to help Mac users fully realize the benefit that an aftermarket solid-state flash memory SSD drive can provide to their aging Mac computer’s performance.
No other website like www.mac-ssd-drives.com focuses exclusively on the solid-state flash memory SSD drive upgrade market for Apple computers. Specific tips for dis and re-assembly when upgrading each type of Macintosh (MacBook Pro, Mac mini, iMac, or Mac Pro) to an SSD. Additionally, there’s helpful information on drive cases, docks, cables and techniques to help copy and transfer data from your Mac’s original mechanical hard drive onto a super-fast SSD drive prior to performing the upgrade.
Baer drives the value equation home: “A Mac SSD internal drive upgrade is the single-best performance enhancement you can give an aging Mac laptop or desktop computer. It can dramatically improve launching and running OSX applications, minimize computer startup and shutdown times, and significantly reduce the time needed to backup data and transfer large data files.”
Not only are Apple compatible SSD drives an instant performance and productivity booster, they’ve become far more affordable in the last year as high-volume NAND flash memory production and pricing efficiencies mature.
“Prices of solid-state drives have plummeted over the last year making higher capacity SSD’s, particularly large 256 GB or 512GB drives, decidedly more economical with plenty of space for Mac apps and a user’s data. The data transfer speeds of SSD’s are also reaching new heights of read and write performance with each new generation of solid-state drive technology. On modern 6Gbps SATA III interfaces, SSD’s are now commonly 3-5 times faster than any conventional mechanical hard drive,” says Baer.
Additionally, for those who’s data storage and Mac backup needs aren’t too voluminous, an external ThunderBolt SSD backup drive or a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface drive enclosure paired with an off the shelf SSD can affordably provide the absolutely fastest Mac backup experience you’ve ever had. Particularly if your Mac desktop or MacBook laptop already has an internal SSD, the time needed to back up or transfer large files becomes trivial when flash memory drives are at both ends of the equation.
