Right you are - just did the same thing to my MacPro (without the book), was a bit more complicated, as I had to move the user folder to one of my 4 “normal” 500 MB disks. Due to the price of the SSDs I just could afford a 120 MB Intel drive. The SSD sits now on top of the DVD feeling quite ok there :-) So speed isn’t as fast as it might be on your MacBookPro but still I like the little guy inside my huge machine…

How big of a hard drive did you get? Will a similar thing work in my Macbook (not PRO) which was manufactured in 2009?

RE: What do you do with the swapped out parts? Throw them away?

Ebay… or donate and get a tax deduction ;)

I got a 240 GB drive for the MacBook to try it out. Now I’m thinking about getting a 480 GB for the Mac Pro… and it’s going to go into a real drive bay too… but my SATA controller is still just a 3 Gbps. No 6 Gbps here.

@Sunil: I don’t know but OWC has complete compatibility lists on their site. They say they have a drive for any computer made in the last 10 years!
