Step #8 Lines

[* black] The most striking layout change resulting from the shrink from a 15" to 13" form factor is the rearranged battery cells. This allowed Apple's designers to cleverly tuck the SSD away underneath the trackpad assembly.
[* black] The empty space next to the SSD is very un-Apple. It's not like them to leave big air gaps in their newest, sleekest designs.
[* black] Our first thought was that a standard 2.5" laptop drive might fit in this space, and it almost looks like this little nook was designed with that in mind.
[* black] Our 9.5mm Crucial SSD didn't allow the bottom cover to be closed, but just barely. We'll see if a 7mm or 5mm super-slim hard drive could be incorporated into the space.
