Mein Problem

I've wanted to speed up my 2007 Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro - so I ordered an optical drive replacement bracket from iFixit as well as a Patriot 64GB SSD in order to put them in. My optical drive had been broken for some time anyways, so I didn't miss it at all.

Meine Reparatur

Overall installation went well, but opening up the pre-unibody MBPs continues to be a bit of a nerve-wracking process. The clips at the front of the computer's case proved to be terribly hard to disengage, and the optical drive connector was also very hard to affix back to the motherboard.

Mein Rat

Put the SSD in the SATA slot to the left as that connection will take the most advantage of its extra speed.
