In my search for a SSD, and looking at the new ones that handle SATA 3, I had to take a closer look @ my own specs. Looking like there's no need for me to buy any of the speed demons as my GEN 1 MacBook (yes, THAT old one - lol) is SATA I from what I can see.
ICH7-M AHCI 1.5 Gigabit
Which of the MacBook Pros are Sata 3? Or are these s/w upgrades? I have a 17" 2009 I recently inherited and would consider making the speedy upgrade. + I will be making the move on the MacBook Gen 1 too eventually but doesn't look like I would be able to take av of the 6G or even 3G speeds.
Yes that will work just fine. Actually you could put in a Sata III drive if you really wanted...you just wouldn't get the speed benefits so unless you're planning on putting that drive in a new machine very soon I wouldn't bother.
