Mayer, thanks for the note. The question is: while 12.5mm would fit in unibody MBPs in the past, does it hold true for the unibody MBPs released in Feb 2011?


I can find nothing that states the external case has changed on the MBP so I see no reason that the 12.5 wouldn't fit. Maybe you have better information than I do. Please let us know.
