Pimping my MacBook Pro late 2008 – Part 2, installing a SSD as second disk and boot drive

This is the second last article in my two part posting on “pimping my MacBook Pro, late 2008”. In Part 1 I briefly explained how I upgrade the ram to 8 GB.

Booting on an SSD drive, launching applications, putting the computer to sleep and restoring all became really fast. This is the best way to extend the life of an aging MacBook Pro.
