Track down a number of hardware problems using the MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Troubleshooting Guide.
There are a number of components in the MacBook Pro 13" Unibody that can be cost effectively upgraded.
- Memory: The MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Mid 2010 comes with 4 GB RAM standard, and accepts a maximum of 8 GB. If your MacBook Pro is still running with only the stock RAM, upgrading will provide a dramatic performance boost. You can upgrade to two 4 GB chips for a total of 8 GB very easily.
- Hard Drive: 160 or 250 GB hard drives came standard with the MacBook Pro 13" Unibody. You can easily upgrade the drive to 750 GB.
- Battery: The battery is certainly replaceable, even though Apple doesn't consider it to be "user serviceable." Unscrew twelve screws, unplug the battery connector, and the battery can be removed!
