So given what I wrote, do you think that I could do this install myself ( maybe with one of my sons who has a MbP and taken his apart for something else - although he did have the video chip replaced by a co. out west ) - ?
O and I had that done to mine a couple of years ago - the video chip replacement - by the same co.
He took it to the local guys here as I did mine ( for the chip ) - we are in Maine and they send those out to a co. in California - and when it came back they talked about putting in a SSD, cuz it would speed it up and which they did install cuz it was there and already apart, to replace another fan which they did for no charge. And he put in a 60GB SSD.
( He has the same as me, just a 17" screen. ) So...I guess it's just preference and price to consider.
So, I could do that too. It's just downtown here. Although, I kind of want to try it myself. I like to do stuff like that so I think I probably could cuz it looks easy enough, but what if I screw it up? And in that case I could just take it downtown to them and they could fix it.
So I dunno. I go back and forth with it. What I do not have is the tiny screwdriver with the phillips and the hex. But anyway I have a couple of choices: get the tools and do it or just take it downtown.
