Out of all the upgrades we've done in the past, Memory upgrades, Operating System upgrades etc, in our experience nothing compares to the speed boost you get from upgrading your Mac to an SSD.
SSD stands for Solid State Drive, and unlike normal hard drives which have a mechanical arm to read data from disk platters, SSD's store data in microchips, much like a USB memory stick does. This difference makes the SSD much faster - its doesn't require a moving arm to get information. Most Macs made within the last 10 years will qualify to upgrade to an SSD.
Typical Boot time on a traditional HD is around a minute and a half, with an SSD installed your system starts up in less than 30 seconds.
Take a look at the chart opposite to see the difference between a regular SATA Drive and an SSD. The chart shows how long each drive takes to read and write 256K blocks, measured in MB/s (Megabytes per second)
