There must something AWESOME inside the silver unibody box that I have not ever try to learn and use before. I've seen enough and heard enough so I gave up and want to learn how to use Apple for the first time. My plan is to keep my window desktop and add an Apple laptop.
I got a hand-me-down Macbook Pro (early 2011) from a good friend. Please let me know if it is good enough for culling and edit on the go. I don't think the screen is retina but the image quality is not bad at all. It is similar as my Dell IPS desktop screens.
I was told that it is not possible to upgrade the 4GB RAM, is that true?
Should I upgrade the HD to an SSD? Is 256GB good enough?
Should I remove the DVD and use the current HD as a 2nd HD beside the SSD?
Is it a tough learning curve as I have never used Apple before?
Am I going to have trouble with export and import catalog between Window desktop and Apple laptop?
Is it worth it to upgrade this "early 2011" model for my purpose or it is too old and too slow even with the upgrade?
Am I looking at $200 upgrade or $500?
Sorry!!! That is a ton of questions. Thank you again in advance for helping me!!!
