Upgrade, or downgrade ?


When I bought my MacBook Pro recently, I decided to upgrade the stock hard disc (500GB) to a 1TB model. It still amazes me how we can get 1TB of capacity onto this:

When we can’t even have trains running on time or machines work properly in the UK.

My reasoning for the 1TB drive was the ability to carry all my iTunes content (vast music collection and more recently buying visual content) around with me. However, the 1TB drive itself was pretty slow, so I’ve been searching for something a little faster and discovered a 750GB drive with much better specs.

I installed today and I must admit the machine doesn’t seem that much faster. I guess I’ll play around over the next day or so and see how it goes.

I think I’m also now spoiled by the SSD drive in the new MacBook Air I have. It is so so fast, and for the type of work I do hard drive speed dominates and SSD drives can’t be beaten on that. Shame they don’t have a 1TB version !, or at least one that’s affordable !

My big question: does in upgrade in speed forsaking capacity constitute an upgrade or a downgrade ?
