    I have kind of a weird question. I have a 08 MP and i love it except the drive bays. Removing a drive is a bitch and frankly ends up hurting my fingers by the time it lunges out of the plug. I am wondering if there is a way to use the larger drive bay holders on the 09 MP on my 08. Also how did they add the extra room for these larger drive bays for more finger room.

    The hub of stupidity
    Apple had to adjust the logic board to allow for slightly longer sleds, so the '09 ones will fit on the mounts, but be to long for the side door to fit back on.

    My advice: use a screw driver to fit in the small gap to pry the sucker off (gently of course)
