Is 120gb ssd big enough

Hi guys wondering if anyone who has a ssd might be able to let me know. I have a MacBook Pro currently with a hdd I want to replace and don't fancy a big price tag so looking at a 120gb ssd.

What I was looking to run was standard OS X, win10 and then 2 apps being Microsoft suite and guild wars 2. I will be using the old 500gb hdd as a second storage drive so music ect can go on that.

Any advise would be appreciated.

  1. No. I have a WinTEN box, running only BOINC, with 160GB HD and it's down to 10GB free space already.

    Most 120 GB SSDs have half the number of flash lanes as the 250 GB and larger drives, so perform slower. I highly recommend waiting and saving up the extra $20-$30 to get a 250 GB SSD.

    Also, be sure you research upgrading the HDD on your exact model MBP. For a few years, Apple was using a proprietary temperature sensor. If you swapped the HDD with one with a different connector or failed to transfer the temperature sensor over, the fan would run at full speed all the time.
