HDD to SDD Conversion Possible?

I have an Early 2008 MacBook Pro (pre-unibody) and I was wondering if it is possible to do a SSD conversion.

What drive would I have to buy?

Any other accessories to make it work?

Thanks!

You should have no problems going to an SSD drive. I would get one that has jumpers to slow it down just in case. To get you to the correct guide for replacing it please give us the last three figures of your serial number. You can also replace the optical drive with an adapter and add the drive there.

I agree with Dan about not upgrading the MacBook because of its age, however , if you still want to upgrade you can buy any one of these hard drives to use:

120 GB

240 GB

480 GB

You can also add a hard drive to your optical bay as a boot and application drive and keep you old hard drive installed for media which would give you a huge speed boost and allow you to store more than just an SSD would allow:

Hope this helps.

While I love SSD technology, I wouldn't upgrade such an old MacBook Pro due to the limits of the older Mac OS-X you'll need to use on it.

Update (05/30/2012)

I thought you had a PPC version Vs Intel - Sorry ;-{

As long as you have Snow Leopard or better you should be fine.

What do you mean by older Mac OS-X? I am currently using Lion (10.7.4) on my machine.

Samuel - It's best to ask your own question Vs tagging along on someones else's. Heres the guide to get to the HD in your system: MacBook Pro 17" Models A1151 A1212 A1229 and A1261 Hard Drive Replacement I would strongly reconned using an external HD case to first install the SSD into then prep it before opening your mac and don't forget to set the SATA jumper for SATA 1 mode. Your other option is to take out the CD/DVD reader and put the HD into it's spot using the iFixIt CD frame (using the SSD in the HD's bay): 12.7 mm PATA Optical Bay SATA Hard Drive Enclosure
