It's the mid-2009 13" MBP, as I stated in the thread title. It has the same accessibility as the newest 13" MacBook Pros. I found it easier, actually, to open the case and access the HDD and RAM than the old white MacBook (replaceable battery), the access plate of which you had to unscrew at an angle. Not to mention you don't get that badly fitting battery surface that doesn't sit flush with the rest of the bottom of the case. I get the feeling that the bottom case of the unibody will fit beautifully flush no matter how many times I open it up.
Thanks. I appreciate your thoughts. It seems the UniBodies are much easier to open but looks can be deceiving sometimes.
Regarding your HDD, I understand that people need space. My brother is one of them. He needs the space and is interested in a 1TB drive.
For some reason, I have always used my notebooks as satellite machines. I mostly work off the iDisk regarding file storage. I really just load the Apps I need and no more. This way if something happens, not a big deal minus the $$$ part of it.
I thought about doing the DVD bay replacement kit but if I have a machined slot on my notebook, it will remain usable even though I don't use it. Go figure on my logic.
