    Hi guys,

    I come here to seek advice, as i am not very knowledged in hardrives and stuff.

    So, I have a 2011 15 inches macbook pro right, it came with a 7200 rpm hd, and i want to switch it for a ssd ( possibly owc mercury extreme, any other suggestions?). My question is, is it possible to transfer everything i have ( music, files, pictures, logic pro sounds and AudioUnits and everything i forgot) from my 7200 hardrive to my new ssd? Can i do that?

    Thank you for your time!

    yes. you can clone the drive. take a look here. beware though that there might be some issues with the mac not recognizing the new disk (i once tried this on a macbook 1,1 and the mac didn't take it - kind of hardware safety stuff, so that manual hardware upgrades are not allowed - this ain't your average PC :D )
