The 120GB drive works out at about 37p per GB. The 240GB version works out at 27p per GB of storage. I'm just pointing out that some people might consider the larger drive better value for money.

As a boot drive the average person could probably last with 120GB, so why pay more if you gonna attach a 1TB+ HDD anyway.

True, but generally the bigger an SSD is, the faster it will be. Of course even this one will be miles ahead of a regular HDD as a boot drive.
These were £55 yesterday when I placed my order for two of them, Managed to cancel before dispatch and went for the 240gb version instead

Have no idea off my laptop HDD. Done a crucial scan and they recommend SATA SSD. So are these compatible?
jjabbar, yes it's a SATA SSD.
Will this be any better than the Kingston I ordered a few days ago when it was £39.

We have seen something similar with ram prices over the years but yes usually tech gets cheaper and you get more for your money.

Because of the operation of ssd it is required to keep 20% of their storage free, which means 96 gb is the true capacity. Windows 10 eats 30 gb with updates, so you still have 60 gb for everything else. It doesn't sound good I think. Go for a 240 gb, it is worth it, and yes, it will be faster than a 120 gb version.

If your laptop is 7 years old or newer you have no problem using this one. Only 8 years old laptops used IDE port instead of SATA. (but some of the premium laptops knew sata that time as well).

thanks for correcting my spelling error, there's no better feeling than seeing your error corrected by some kind internet person and reassuring to know that whatever someone writes with the odd grammatical error, someone else will kindly point out the errors. Although it must be a full time job on here

Well the RAM market was quite different, the hikes there were either seasonal, often reaching peak dip at the end of our summer when buyers started to emerge preparing for the winter boost of sales of consumer electronics.
Often market shifting played a part (ie move from DDR to DDR2 etc or finally down to random factors such as earthquakes and fires taking out major supply points.
Four years ago i purchased a couple of Intel 120Gb SSDs which probably match these in performance and were only £39 i think, Moores law is well and truly goosed here.

Rubbish. Fill em up. But bigger will be faster (and cheaper per Gb)

Could have used the word poo :-))
My 2010 MacBook Pro i5 (15") is so slow after it got updated to El Capitan. I get a spinning disk and have to wait ages for any programme to load. Would an SSD make a difference to that issue or is it more likely to be lack of RAM (it only has 4GB).

RAM is quite expensive £80 so I don't know if I would be better to put the £80 (RAM) and £65 towards a newer machine in a year or two or would getting this SSD make a difference without getting more RAM?

Putting in an SSD will make a huge difference. 4gb ram is enough fir most things, although upping to 8gb will help. It’s not £80 though (edit - it is £80 for 2x 4gb sticks, crucial anyway, I’m sure I didn’t pay that), don’t fall for the “apple” ram premium, you just need the correct speed, I’m actually selling 2 matching crucial 4gb ram sticks that’s been in my 2009 macbook pro

I have one of these from a previous deal quite a while back and the difference between an ssd and a hard drive is immense. I have a 2010 MacBook and it runs perfectly well with this ssd on the latest software!

Definitely get the SSD, it will make a massive difference. 4GB of RAM is ok for now if you do the SSD first, but have an eye on upgrading it and be on the lookout for cheap RAM, you can even pick it up used on EBay to keep the cost down. Your need for RAM depends also on what applications you are using and if they are hitting the ceiling of what you have right now. I just upgraded my 2010 Macbook (Non-Pro) to a 240GB SSD and I can go from having the machine turned off to switching on, booting up, and loading a new page in Safari in about 50 Seconds which isn't bad at all in an older laptop. You'll see a big difference with a SSD.

Thanks everyone for your replies - went and bought the 240GB one - would be great if it works as I can't really use the MBP at the moment due to how slow everything is.

You might also want to do a clean install of High Sierra to see if that helps make things run a little more so slick along with your SSD.

But usually no comma before an 'and' don't worry I'm being a pedantic tosspot. One thing I've found is that there's always someone far more pedantic with more to prove than you (or me)
