    Does anyone know how to change the internal hard drive in the new 13" MacBook Pros? I have a 500GB hard drive I was using in my black MacBook and does anyone know if I can still use this hard drive in the new MacBook Pros?

    yes you can, ifixit.com is taking apart the 13" MBP right now.

    Undo a few screws, pop off the back cover and swap out the drives

    I was just wondering about this.. Even though you can do it yourself still is it still considered a user replaceable part or is this going to drum up the old "will this void my warranty" discussions?

    How much performance gain will I see going from the 250 GB 5400 rpm stock drive to a 500 GB 7200 RPM seagate drive?
