I really need some guidance and advise! I am NOT a computer savy person so please forgive my ignorance!
I have a MacBook Pro i7 with a 750g HDD that I just purchased used from my daughter. It is basically brand new and has been used less than 40 hours. Still under warranty.
I will be using this laptop for work and need to run Microsoft Word, Excel, surf the net, and have a large volume of pictures and videos to transfer over for my job. I have always kept these images on my computer and would like to continue to do so moving forward. I do not want a separate hard drive if I can do without.
I went to a computer store about having the data moved from my old MAC onto the new one or place it on a Time Capsule. The computer technician advised me not to use the Time Capsule but to just move everything over to the new MAC. He wants to take out my current HDD which is like new and replace it with a 250G SSD to make my computer faster and perform better. The HDD drive will be removed because I don't want to give up the CD drive that I do use with work.
Is this a wise move? What would be the benefit of replacing this hard drive? I just need feedback on whether or not this is truly an upgrade or if I should find a new computer technician!
