    If it’s a 13” for sure.

    Also you can remove the optical drive and install a drive caddy. In this model computer in place of optical only SATA 2 speed hard drives are fully supported. SATA 3 may give you errors.


    That’s the model I have.
    Replacing the main hard disk takes 10 minutes.
