    Anyone know if the hard drive is as easy to change as the previous unibody?

    I believe they remove the doors for access to the area, but I haven't seen shots of the back of the 13" MBP yet.

    Good point, there are a lot of details that need to surface. How do we change the ram, battery, and hard drive now? Will it void the warranty to do it ourselves? Nobody really knows at this point. We should know more details by tonight.

    I just realized I posted this in Macbook instead of MBP forum. I guess I still think of the 13" as a regular macbook...

    yikes i'm calling now to see if they can help me (Apple customer support) as I just ordered mine with the lowest 250gb HDD as I already have a 320gb drive i wanna throw in there, or even if I want to upgrade to a 500gb drive, newegg has a 7200rpm for 130, Apple wants an extra 135 to upgrade from 250

    hopefully we get an answer soon so i can alter my order if need be

    If it's difficult I'll just order mine from apple online with the specs I want.

    don't worry about. It will be easy (the same) because of the unibody case.

    The 17" already is like this and the HD is mounted same as others.

    Trust me.


    Note: Swapping on these new machines is wonderfully easy compared to the previous gen. My last Macbook (pre-uni) was not fun at all to open.

    Now I swap drives constantly it's so easy.
