So just before the whole pandemic thing started I was considering buying a new laptop – my 15″ 2014 MacBook was running great but the 500gb SSD was full and I didn’t want to give any of the files on it. So while trying to scrounge together the money for a new one – I remembered that I had helped someone set up a fast ssd as a bootable external drive so maybe i could get a speed bump that way.
Ultimately, after 3 weeks of searching the webz buying 2 of the wrong drives, 2 wrong enclosures and 4 adapters (that supposedly should have worked) I realized that Apple’s drive requirements vary greatly from machine to machine and I was about to give up when I found THESE GUYS! 2TB for $300?
They even sent the tools with and it took less than 5 mins to install the drive and since the migration was SSD to SSD the move itself took an hour…
So if you need an upgrade but cant find the cash for a new machine – check and see if HatSSD has a solid state hard drive that will breathe new life into your Mac!
