Question of cloning for SSD upgrade on 12 Macbook Pro

Previously, I did an upgrade to SSD on my Macbook Air to 2012 according to the instructions of JetDrive transcend. Basically connection via USB 3 and using Mac OS X to clear (and format) disc utilities new SSD, then restore again SSD and then remove the original 128 GB SSD and insert the new 480 GB SSD.  For about a month and so far without problem.

Now I'm trying to 2012 Macbook upgrade my Pro partner (on 10.11.6).  I got a Crucial SSD MX300 to replace his HARD drive.  Crucial comes with (or recommend) Acronis software.  And a lot of the messages of the forum recommend Carbon Copy Clone.

My question is if I can use the same method for the cloning of the HD as my Macbook Air (just restore disk of Mac OS X utilities)?  This time, I'm upgrading HARD drive and I don't know if something is different.  At the same time, if I got lucky the first time, I don't not ruin Macbook Pro my spouse this time.

Thank you.

Yes, you can use disk utility to clone your MBP wives, but unlike CCC, it will not clone the recovery and Partition.

    1 EFI can point to your facility in W10. Please check.

    What questions should I expect if I go my MacBook Pro version 8.1 of Snow Leopard to El captain?  Apple says it is eligible.

    Start by looking at roaringapps.com.  It shows applications that do not work in the different versions of OSX.  In particular, the PowerPC applications do not work beyond SnowLeopard.

    Report of the amount of RAM you have (more useful), and you might consider upgrading to an SSD if your hard drive is 3 years old only because that for speed and because each HD eventually die even if it isn't now.

    If you have used any other processor of professional quality (for example, Microsoft Word), and then just go ahead and use the current culture of free (financially) applications on devices you mention. It will not take too long before you understand point Apple of giving them. No application in the world can open documents Pages but the most recent version.

    Free will begin to erode when Pages for Mac forget how to open a perfectly fine document that you saved an hour or two ago. Or you realize you have to press the SHIFT key every time you want a first word in a sentence. Or you can not bind the text boxes to the text layout advanced stream. Or you can't do data merge / e-mail. Table of contents page links or comments will not export to PDF.

    Pages is not a clone of Word, and you'll quickly realize that Pages input/export deal with the translation. Open a blank document. Type the letter "A". Export to Word .docx. It will be 494KO in size. Do the same thing in LibreOffice or MS Word and it will be 8 KB.

    You see the buttons in red, yellow, and red window? If for this, click on the green.

    If you don't then you may be in mode full screen, and pressing once or twice on the "F" key to return to normal mode.

  • Is there a compatible ssd to upgrade early 2015 Macbook Pro?

    Planning on buying a new macbook pro.  Information on upgrading the early 2015 macbook pro said that it wasn't something compatible yet.  I was wondering if in 2016 if anything compatible exist now?

    OWC (macsales) can have.

    But even open systems of the retina may void the warranty and can give the Genius Bar the right to deny any future service to avoid being blamed for what you broke.  Change the SSD guarantees you invalidation some.

  • I want to upgrade my HDD to SSD on a 13 "MacBook Pro model 2011.

    I want to upgrade the 512 GB drive HARD on my MacBook Pro 13 "2011 model to a 1 TB SSD.

    I would like to know if it is safe and that it will improve the performance of my computer?

    If your computer is under warranty I would take a first service provider since the upgrade of the disk hard yourself may void the warranty.

    Hard disks have magnetic disks called platters, that something similar to a needle, called a head, uses to read and write data.  Solid disks have no moving parts so the data is read and written much faster than a hard drive.  From a HDD for one SSD must have a performance increase, but it will only increase performance when the determinant of the performance are the storage of read and write times.  The amount of applications that are running at the same time is always dependent on the amount of system memory.  The time that processor intensive tasks such as converting video and audio can take is still dependent on the processor.  Several components material impact on the overall performance of the computer system from a disk HARD of a DDI will only have an impact on performance when the data is written to or read from storage.

  • Can I upgrade my current MacBook Pro or buy a new one?

    Model MacBook Pro 13 inch 2010
    Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    RAM 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
    Graphics NVIDIA GeForce 320M 256 MB
    Storage HARD DRIVE 250 GB
    OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite

    Hi, I have looked at upgrading my current laptop with some much needed performance boosters, but do not know if in the long run it is worth, or if I should save up for a newer model.

    The updates that I think first to replace my current HARD drive with an SSD 250 GB and secondly to replace my 4 GB of ram and 16 GB. (Officially, State Apple this machine does support 8GB, but it's been verified since it can take up to 16 GB).

    While I know that these two updates should improve the speed and performance of my pretty spectacular machine, roughy wonder how many years my phone will be usable for after the upgrade. The limiting factor main seems to be my processor, which I am aware might be an obstacle in the future. I understand that apple tend to make updates each new OS X only available for latest machines, and I fear that soon, they will be unavailable for Core 2 Duo models. Can anyone confirm this?

    So, I guess my question is, how to limit will be my processor to the duration of life/performance of my mac if I perform the above upgrades?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance!

    It depends on.

    If you use a lot, I recommend to get a new MacBook. If you use too many, your MacBook Pro will be fine.
