    Well, it looks like the new Mac Book Pros will be announced soon, and I'm thinking about how to prepare my 2009 13" MBP before selling. I've replaced the 250 GB drive with a 1 TB drive and upgraded the OS to Snow Leopard. Should I put the 250 GB back in the computer before reformatting or use it as a selling point? Do you think I'd be able to use the 1 TB drive in a new 15" MBP?

    I would appreciate your thoughts. Thanks

    I sold my late 08 15" with the original 250 GB in it. I pulled out both my SSD in optibay and the 1 TB data drive simply because 1) I didn't mind getting maybe $400 less and possibly being able to use both drives in my next MBP, and 2) I didn't want to have to clone my data and then have to restore it to the new MBP when I get it. There is the chance that the next MBPs will be a little thinner and the 1 TB drives will no longer fit, but I will deal with that when the time comes.

    Sell it with the 1TB drive. Tack on $150-$200 in value. You can get another for under $100 later.

    Apple does BTO and charges out the wazoo so why not you?
