Is this something that's in the DSM?
In other news, I am halfway through doing an upgrade on my Macbook Pro (mid-2009). I discovered that Macbooks are really picky about the type of memory they use. Do not think that the specification of memory speed is an "as least as fast as" spec; it is an "exactly this fast" spec. Thankfully, Amazon is easygoing about returns. 8GB of what I hope is the right memory this time is on the way.
The SSD upgrade went smoothly, and that is probably more important overall in terms of improving system snappiness.
The battery probably only has about 3-6 months left, but I'll replace that when I have to.
I had originally started thinking it might be time to just buy a whole new laptop (it's the Apple way!) but high-end MBP prices have gone through the roof since 2009. Also, new Apple laptops are now completely non-user-serviceable (RAM soldered to the motherboard, battery glued not screwed in, etc).
The only real heavy-lifting thing I do on the laptop is photo and video editing, so if I got a new desktop system and committed to only doing that stuff at home, I would probably be okay with an Air, which I wouldn't be quite as annoyed with not being able to upgrade, for some reason.
