    Default Macbook Pro (Mid-2012) SSD Upgrade - Help

    My hardware knowledge is limited, so I thought I would ask.

    I am planning to upgrade my Macbook pro Mid - 2012 with SSD hard drive.

    MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012)
    Processor: 2.5 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5
    Memory: 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
    Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB

    Found 2 products, one is £10 cheaper than the other. Except for a slight transfer speed difference both look the same. But I am not sure

    Crucial BX500 1TB CT1000BX500SSD1-Up to 540 MB/s (Internal SSD, 3D NAND, SATA, 2.5 Inch): Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories - £88
    Crucial MX500 1 TB CT1000MX500SSD1-Up to 560 MB/s (3D NAND, SATA, 2.5 Inch, Internal SSD), Black: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories - £99

    Can somebody help?

    Thanks

    Anyway, after several pages and videos, I have managed to spot the differences. Here it is. Might be useful for some one.

    £99 - MX500 comes with DRAM/Cache + 5 warranty (2 years more). Went for it.
