Fantastic tutorial. A newbie to doing any computer or mac DIY but I am reasonably practical. Had the whole thing apart and back together in under an hour and worked first time which is great!
I used the software superduper (just the free version) to copy my 1Tb rotating disc to a 2Tb SSD which took just under 5 hours to complete but meant once SSD is in it was just logged straight back in without worrying about time machine.
I'm in the UK so bought a kit through Amazon rather than the iFixIt one which had everything I needed.
Congrats to the author for a great walk through and thank you!
