I just updated my Mid-2015 MacBook Pro to 2TB of internal storage and realizing the new 2021 MBP’s are out of my price range for a bit. So why not give this one a boost. It still works great otherwise but I was always running out of space on the original 500 gig internal drive.
I went with a Samsung NVMe 970 EVO Plus and using the proper interface adaptor it worked great and fit like it was made for the machine.
And while having such ample space is great, I think the bigger and unexpected boost came from this drive being WAY faster than the original drive. Before I did the swap, I ran some speed tests and was getting 1500 Mbps read and 300 Mbps writes. But with the new drive it’s more like 3,500 Mbps each way! The machine feels like a new machine even though it’s just a clone of the old one onto the new drive. I’m just blown away.
One note about the guide here. Where it tells you to peel back the tape to get to the battery connector, you only need to pull it back slightly. I tried taking the entire thing off.
Agreed. That’s actually the part I need to replace too. The module.
Has anyone tried the 8-gig memory kit from TransIntl?
I'm on the fence between upgrading this or replacing it, but if I'm truly limited to 4 gigs max that's a deciding factor.
