    Hi Guys,

    I just wanted to find out if anyone here has or knows how hard it is to swap the original cd drive in one of these macs with another tray-load drive.

    Will they take any standard IDE drive?

    Cheers.

    hello,

    it is not too hard to do.. you basically unscrew some screws and pull the logic board out... ive done it a few times myself, and it wasnt extreamly hard

    You cant use any old IDE drive, you need an apple drive, becuase the drive is not stardadrd size, its slim.
