iFixit instructions and repair kit made this a breeze!
My laptop had become increasingly slow and bogged down over the years. I was considering replacing it to capitalize on the fancier new lappys with SSD drives in em, when my nephew gave me the idea to just replace the drive. After a bit of Googling around I found the iFixit video to do just this for my exact older model Mac laptop!
The video made it seem very easy and I experienced the same when going along with it on my repair. I've gotta say that the repair kit itself was of MUCH higher quality than I anticipated! Very pleasantly surprised by that. :) All this coupled with the step by step video and picture walkthrough made it all so easy!
Be sure to follow all the steps! iFixit makes it super simple with the video and step by step picture walkthroughs!
