    Hi guys,

    Yes, it's yet another ssd question thread ;)

    Anyways, I'll keep it short, I was looking into replacing my HDD with an Intel SSD 320 series (Intel SSD 320 Series 300GB, SATA-II, 2.5 Zoll, Desktop Kit < is that enough information or will you need more?).

    Two quick questions: Can I replace my HDD or will I need to replace my ODD (Tutorial I found here: Link to tutorial) Also will this SDD fit into a late 2008 MBP size-wise? Would be uncool to spend all the money just to figure it wont fit ;)

    Thanks for answers in advance,

    wish you all a nice day,

    KD

    The HDD will fit into the HDD bay if you remove the HDD.
