I need a new hard drive and memory, but have no idea what to order. What kind of hard drive do I need? Memory?


Any recommendations?


Macbook Pro

13-inch, early 2011


Processor: 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5

Memory: 4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3

Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 3000 384 MB

Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5

hard drive.

depends on how much money you have to spend and how much storage you want, do you want a ssd (fast but expensive per GB of storage.) or a normal hd (slower but lots cheaper per GB of storage.)

as for physical dimensions you want a 2.5inch drive maximum of 9.5mm in depth.


hd :- http://www.newegg.co...ING&PageSize=30

ssd :- http://www.newegg.co...08120 600038463



as for memory i suggest visiting the crucial site :- http://www.crucial.c...en/apple-memory

answer the questions and they will list compatible memory for your model of mac.


curious but why do you think you need both new memory and hard drive? nothing wrong with that, it's just usually people only need 1 or the other, more memory or a new hard drive because old has failed, and why i'm curious.
