I have a 17" MacBook Pro (early 2011) and am currently running a Seagate 750GB Momentus XT. I am running low on space and am late to the upgrade party as far as MacOS Sierra is concerned (I'm a pro musician and am still running Mac OS 10.8.5). I'd love to throw a 2TB SSD in there, but can't afford it (not to mention the concept of adding a very expense drive to a machine that Apple will no longer support at all on January 1st). Therefore, I'm trying to find the best Hybrid solution, hopefully 2TB, but I could go with 1TB , based on performance.
The things I'm looking for most is a Hybrid drive that runs at 7200 RPM. I'm having trouble finding such an animal, so I'm hoping you folks might be of help. Does anyone know of one? Seagate offers only 5400 Hybrids. Can anyone help me out with some suggestions? Much appreciated!
