    Yes! But don't expect miracles if your laptop has weak Processor and Low RAM Memory.

    Boot up times for OS and software are pretty damn fast on a SSD. It's worth it unless it's your only way to store all your files. Get a (external) HDD to keep all your huge files and you'll be good.

    SSDs run pretty smooth n fast. I have upgraded to SSDs and the most fun part is the data transfer speed!

    yes u r right
    and also you should keep backup from ur files in SSD, since if something goes wrong, all your data will be lost permanent, and there is no recovery option for SSD

    Definitively use a SSD Hard Drive, but you have to be aware that resetting system from the button or unplug from power source, can cause problems.

    SSD is faster than HDD, smaller, and more durable. But they can also be expensive so make sure you would rather have an SSD than something else which may end up helping you more.

    I recently Upgraded to a Samsung 840 Pro in my 2012 MBP and the boot times and loading times are ridiculously faster. On top of that my MacBook Pro is now silent.

    Your laptop will read/write files onto the sdd faster, the main reason why you might want it is because an ssd is almost indestructible, you can drop it, shake your laptop around while its running, overheat it, and you wont have to worry about any data becoming corrupted. SDD's are more expensive but keep your information safe. A regular hard drive is much more fragile.
