After deciding Windows PCs weren't for me and not finding a Mac to my liking in regards to price and specs, I decided instead to retrofit my current late model 2009 13" Macbook Pro and 2009 Mac Mini with Yosemite, max'ed RAM and brand new SSD drives! On top of that, my MBP was in bad shape with a broken trackpad, bad battery and cracked monitor clutch hinge. I yanked out the DVD drives from both computers, slapped SSDs in it's place and while the computer "hood" was open I swapped out all the parts needing replacement! www.ifixit.com is a godsend for these type of repairs! I also spent the time to clear out all the dust and dirt inside both computers. So now each Mac is running dual hard drives with an SSD to boot the OS/apps and a standard HD for file/photo storage. I rebuilt the directories for all the drives using a bootable flash drive running Diskwarrior 5, installed AppDelete to get rid of old and unwanted apps and using Little Snitch to monitor all outgoing transmissions. On the MBP I'm using SMC Fan Control to monitor temps and fan speed in order to keep the computer laptop as cool as possible. Anyways, all the upgrades and repairs cost less than buying a new computer and on top of that, I didn't have to pay an overpriced repair bill at the Apple Store! I tried explaining to my wife what I did, but I don't think she gets the extent of what I did to fix our computers! lol All that's left is installing all the latest apps, but so far both computers are humming smoothly as if they just got a major tune-up at the mechanic!
