    Specs:
    Mac Minis, iPhone 6/5S, iMac, Mac Book Pro
    New hard drives available in the newer models
    I just read that the MBP now can be configured with up to a 250 GB hard drive. I want to go larger than my existing 120 GB drive. Can this be done? Having backed up with Time Machine, would I just drag the HD from the external drive to the new one? Or, how does this work?

    You can't upgrade the hard disks in the MacBook Pros without voiding your warranty. As sad as that is....

    That's true, but jrichard doesn't have a MacBook.

    No, upgrading the Memory (RAM) is fine and will not void your warranty.

    The MacBook has a user replaceable Hard Drive. The MacBook Pro does not.

    Memory is the only thing you can change in a MBP.

    Amazing that the PRO model has less versatility than the lower level model.
