Hey,

So in a few of my other posts, I've mentioned I am going to purchase a MacBook pro either tomorrow or early next week.

I have another question before my purchase though, I have heard that the hard drives are user replaceable, is this true?

If this is the case, can I use any hard drive? I'm looking on newegg, and there are some good deals on drives, like a WD 320gb 7200 SATA 3gb/s 3.5" drive.

I'm assuming Mac's take SATA 3gb/s 3.5" drives, right?

I would love to just go to the store and order everything in person so I do no have to wait for processing and shipping time, and the only thing I want to do is upgrade the HD.

Is the process as simple as in a Windows machine? Just swap the other one in?

Thanks

MacBook Pros, like all laptops, take 2.5" drives.

They are user upgradable on current models. Instructions are in the manual.
