To give a second life to an old Mac, nothing better than replacing its hard drive with an SSD, the effect is guaranteed. At the moment, the 480 GB PNY CS900 SSD is sold for €39.99 instead of €49.99 by Amazon and Cdiscount. This is the best price to date for an internal SSD approaching 500 GB of storage.

The speeds of the PNY CS900 are capped at 550 MB/s in reading and 500 MB/s in writing (its cache is 8 GB), very far from the performance of the SSDs integrated into recent Macs, but as a hard disk replacement, it already makes a huge difference.
