    Put that into your aging laptop and you could get another one year of decent performance-time.

    Probably, but check out amazon/newegg for reviews just to make sure.

    I just put a crucial m4 in my 2008 macbook yesterday, works great.

    Since the 2008 macbook only has SATA 1, it only gets about a 50% increase in HD speed with the SSD, but that' enough to hold me for another year or two.

    Just make sure that you have a Phillips #00 screwdriver and a Torx T6 screwdriver handy.

    Also manually select the startup disk in System Preferences after the install to ensure a fast bootup time (it cut mine in half)

    My experience with Apple is they are not very nice when it comes to upgrades, it cost me $200+ to put an SSD in my 2009 Macbook Air as I could only use a few different brands due to size and plug formats.

    That said I think the Air is a lot more difficult to upgrade due to space issues.

    Just be safe and check online for others experience with it.

    that damn star screw! ugh. when i had a mac and my hdd died it was quite a pain to get it out to replace it. that screw is in such an awkward spot and of course they can't just use a regular phillips.
