    Hard Drive User Upgradable?
    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

    Specs:
    12" Apple PowerBook G4 (1.5GHz)
    MacBook Pros, like all laptops, take 2.5" drives.

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

    Ah yes, that would make more sense.
