This answer was originally to another question.

Yes- what you want is this kit, or, something like it. If you get your kit elsewhere be sure to get the recommended tools (every job is easier when you use the proper tools).

You'll still need an SSD drive OWC has a variety - (you can also get a kit with their drives).

If you are using the SSD I'd use it to boot instead of back up (SSD's write speed is not as fast as their read speed so many use the SSD to boot, then write to the HD).

Size wise you could get anything up to your 500GB hd (for backup).

Study (not just read) the installation guide. Most DIYers have problems pulling the connectors off logic boards because they didn't unlock them, pulled the wrong direction, or didn't use a spudger under the edge of the connector.

Separate and mark all your screws so they go back in the right spots.
