Will replacing your old Macbook Pro hard drive with an upgraded SSD make it feel like a whole new computer? I replaced the SSD in my 2015 macbook pro with the OWC Aura Pro X2 and tested the speed and performance before and after.
As a photographer & content creator I edit and export a LOT of photos and videos, so finding ways to speed up my old macbook pro is something I’m always on the lookout for. Hopefully these speed tests and review upgrading my macbook with the OWC Aura Pro 2 SSD will help you decide whether you should upgrade your old mac, or invest in a new one.

Thermal Paste –

Isopropyl Alcohol – Buy this at a grocery store or pharmacy anything with an alcohol content over about 70% is fine. At $0.70 its WAY cheaper than buying the special electronic stuff for $15+!
Compressed Air – I recommend you buy this at a hardware store as its WAY cheaper than online. The one I got was about $5 at home depot. Just make sure its compressed air only, and doesn’t have anything else in there.
