For Digital DJs laptop performance and speed is critical. After a few years of using the same computer you may notice that day one speed just isn’t there. How can you get back that brand new computer feeling back where everything runs super fast? Install a solid state drive.
Rather than spend for a brand new MacBook Pro, why not get more from your original investment with this small performance upgrade. Today we’ll share the easiest and fastest way to upgrade your MacBook/MacBook Pro to a super fast solid state drive and be up and running in no time.

What is the difference between and HDD and a Solid State Drive? Why are SSDs so much faster?
You’re probably familiar with USB memory sticks – SSDs can be thought of as an oversized and more sophisticated version of the humble USB memory stick. Like a memory stick, there are no moving parts to an SSD. Rather, information is stored in microchips. Conversely, a hard disk drive uses a mechanical arm with a read/write head to move around and read information from the right location on a storage platter. This difference is what makes SSD so much faster. As an analogy, what’s quicker? Having to walk across the room to retrieve a book to get information or simply magically having that book open in front of you when you need it? That’s how an HDD compares to an SSD; it simply requires more physical labor (mechanical movement) to get information. (Source: Storage Review)
An SSD can have a dramatic impact on the overall performance of your Mac. With an SSD you’ll experience faster boot up, faster app start up (no more bouncing icons), and overall smoother performance when running multiple apps. There are additional advantages to SSDs that goes beyond just speed:
Durability – Non mechanical design means less risk of damage from shock
Energy Efficient – 2W vs. 6W for an HDD, this can result in a small increase in battery life
Cool and Quiet – No moving parts generate far less heat and near silent operation
Which Mac Is This For?
Before going any further it’s important to clarify what MacBook and MacBook Pro models this tutorial applies to. This tutorial applies to 2008 – 2012 MacBook/MacBook Pro models that are using a hard disk drive. These instructions do not apply to the MacBook Air or MacBook Pro with Retina Displays. These models by default ship with an SSD, which can be upgraded for more storage but DJs with these models are already benefitting from the performance benefits of an SSD. This tutorial definitely doesn’t apply to the new MacBook that’s not very DJ friendly.
