Are you at the crossroads? Unsure whether it's worth it to upgrade your aging Mac or just get a new one? Depending on what you use your system for, it may make sense to keep what you have and soup it up.
One of the biggest advancements in computer performance over the last ten years was the introduction of the SSD. An SSD (solid-state drive) records data to very fast chips instead of spinning magnetic discs. This translates to ridiculously fast start-up times, application launch times, file saves and speed gains in certain rendering tasks. If your Mac supports an SSD (all Mac Pros, all MacBooks and MacBook Pros, all Mac minis and many iMacs) you should consider a switch. Your built-in drive can be installed in an external case and used as a Time Machine backup, or as additional storage for apps, music, documents, etc.
As OS X has gotten more advanced, and software developers release newer and newer versions of their apps, the need for more RAM increases. If your system only has 2GB or 4GB RAM and is upgradeable, you should consider taking it up to 8GB or beyond.
