Adding storage to my ol' 2006 17" MBP

MacBook Core Duo Hard Drive Replacement

5 - 30 minutes

Easy

My Problem

Broken optical drive on my old machine I don't have the heart to replace with a flashy new model, libraries are wayyy too big for the 160gb original HD and don't use compact disks too often anymore, so decided to add a TB

My Fix

so easy! Doesn't even screw in just sits right where optical drive was.

My Advice

Remember to keep the PATA cable from the optical drive as you do not get a new one! And as always with older MacBooks pre unibody don't mix up the screws as they are different sizes and shapes
