Since we are on the topic of Adobe Photoshop and computers, I have a question. Last August (after being a Windows user for 17 years ... from Win 95, 97, 98SE, XP, Vista & Win 7) I switched to Apple Mac Book Pro with the following config:
Mac Book Pro 9.2, 13-inch Mid 2012
Processor: 2.9 Ghz, Intel Core i7
Memory: 16 GB 1600 Mhz DDR3 (originally came with 8GB but I upgraded it to 16GB, from OWC)
HDD: 750GB SATA
It works fine (better than my M14x Alienware) and I have no issue with running CS6, Lightroom, Final Cut Pro & Aperture, iMovie etc ... but I've been tempted with upgrading the HDD to:
a. OWC Mercury Electra 6G (480 GB)
b. OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G (240 GB)
What I want to know is, will upgrading to the above SSD hard disks make a significant speed difference in the way my MBP functions? ... BTW, I am aware that my current HDD has 77/MBps Read speed and that the above SSD will be at over 556/MBps etc, but how much of a difference will it be, in real world usage when working with CS6, Lightroom, FCP, Aperture etc?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
