I recently bought another external hard drive to add to my MacBook Pro. I originally bought it for my PC-based Mac, but after giving it to my wife, I decided to upgrade for her, too. In the end, it was a $150 upgrade, which is the same price as a new Macbook Air. If you have an older Macbook, an external hard drive is a great way to upgrade it if you like it.
As I mentioned, it’s a great way to upgrade one of your laptops, as it’s a great way to make the laptop faster, but it’s also a great way to add storage. If you have space on your MacBook Pro, you can add a second external drive just by adding more internal drive space, even if you still need to load a bunch of apps on a boot menu.
My new Macbook Pro is a Macbook Air 2, but the external drive is a 128 GB SSD, which is the same size as a 500 GB hard drive. If you have plenty of space on your computer you can easily add a second external drive.
My Apple MacBook Pro is a 2011 model. It has 1 TB of storage, but I had to put in a second external drive just to add more space for it. And yes, I’m aware that my Macbook Pro is a MacBook Air. But the SSD is the same size as a 500 GB hard drive.
The 1 TB drive comes with the Macbook Pro. If you don’t have one already, you can get one for about $150. The SSD is the same size as a 500 GB hard drive. The Macbook Air is the same size as a 2012 model.
The SSD is much faster than the hard drive. If you have a 500 GB hard drive, but your Macbook Pro is still powered off, your SSD is likely to be slower than the hard drive.
I wouldn’t want to be you, but I have an SSD that I think is about as fast as the hard drive. It’s a 2 TB SSD, which is still the fastest I’ve ever tested. But, I have a 1 TB hard drive that I think is roughly the same speed as the SSD. It’s a 1 TB SSD that has the same capacity as the hard drive, so it’s a bit of a moot point.
SSDs aren’t really that fast as hard drives are. So what makes them so great is how fast they can be written to. With a traditional hard drive, you really have to wait and wait and then write something out to the hard drive and hope it works. That isn’t as bad with SSDs. You just copy the files straight to the SSD and then move it to the computer. It’s really fast.
Apple is actually a bit of an oddball on the “speed” side of things. They don’t make computers with the fastest SATA drives. The fastest SATA drives are more than 500 GB or larger. And even among the 400 GB SSD models they have, they’re only the fastest of the bunch. But apple is still making a lot of great products that are really fast.
SSDs are very fast. The newest ones have a random read and write speed of 500MB/s. And some have even higher speeds. A 320 GB SSD with a read speed of 480MB/s is very fast. A 320 GB SSD with a write speed of 420MB/s is faster still. But again, it isnt as fast as an SSD from a brand like WD. Theyve got some good drives out there.
