I did this recently. My MacBook Pro is an early-2011 and I upgraded my 500 GB Hard drive to a 1TB SSD.

This is the drive I installed

This is the tutorial I followed for the upgrade

Good Luck!


Why not buy an external HDD? You can get a 4TB HDD for about $100 nowadays. It'll be much cheaper that upgrading to a whole new computer for more space.


Am not upgrading to a while2new computer. Am just changing the hardrive within to a larger storage


It's always good to max out the config for your Mac. You better find out the exact model of your MBP and see if you can upgrade the RAM yourself to 16MB.
Go to check out macsales.com or similar site to see your upgrade options.
