    Hi Everyone,

    I have a question, I was watching videos from youtube on how to replace the SSD of a 13inch macbook pro and the built-in SSD on the pro is half the size of a regular 2.5 ssd?

    I ask this because I have a existing intel 330 ssd and would like to put that in if I get this 13 inch pro. can I put this regular ssd on a 13 inch macbook pro?


    Thanks,
    Christian

    Your post is in the wrong section this is the MacPro section not MacBook Pro

    That said yea a standard 2.5in laptop ssd should fit in a 13 in unibody MacBook Pro

    Unibody non retina 13s use standard 2.5 in laptop hdds

    You probably will have to use trim enabler after install though other than that its straight forward

    Not sure I fully understood your question hope I answered it well

    The video is about a retina MacBook...
    Retina MacBooks have special SSD's. The standard MBP has just a 2.5 sata disk.
