    So, with the new announcement and the hype everyone is getting (fanboy or not). Who's going to take the first shot at cracking open the chasis to upgrade the new macbook from HDD to SSD? Would it be relatively the same as the previous macbook?

    unless they start using those new screws for some stupid reason.. it should be really easy.

    ahh... I totally forgot that they swapped to special screws. I'm sure some company in China would be making a kit for opening! LOL

    There was a news article online about changing screws so that people can't tamper with the inside.
