on the how to identify macbook models do i just buy a hd that fits those specs
yes. size is 2.5" and no more than 9.5 mm in height.
Any SATA II 2.5 inch notebook drive up to 1 TB that is not more than 9.5 mm in height will work. A source for drives, toolkits, and tutorials is OWC.
So do u have any advice on where I can a buy a reasonably priced 1tb had that will fit???
