I have a mid-2012 MacBook Pro with 4GB ram and VERY SLOW. I'm learning coding languages, and Xcode runs like a snail. Is it worth installing a SOLID STATE DRIVE?
Samsung vs Crucial vs SanDisk?

I think it is very much worth it.
Years ago I switched all my PCs (3) over to SSDs and I would never go back.
They boot much faster and everything loads much faster.
Awesome- Thanks Jay. Seems like a much better option than spending$2400 on a new MBP, which is pretty ridiculous.
Any preference on brand?
Based on the research I've done, Crucial looks to be pretty good- maybe Samsung?
 
Also- 500 vs 1T - Is there a noticeable difference?
I wouldn't expect the size to matter as far as speed goes. I may be wrong...but I don't think size matters.
I would just make sure I got one big enough for now and the future.

I play a lot of games....and I find 500GB to be plenty for me.

I usually have around 3 big games (50-60GB) and a bunch of smaller ones and still have lots of room left.

That's great to know - mind made. Thanks again Jay :)
