I was running out of hard drive space. I knew it was time to upgrade. 2TB was the goal. And I knew ifixit could help. I researched the process, downloaded guides, watched videos, and ordered the right tools (a must!).
The repair went flawless (well...at least my display hasn't fallen off or my new HD exploded). :) The guides, the tools, the videos, WOW...THANK YOU ifixit. I feel empowered and it's because of you. Until next time...(note, RAM upgrade is certainly coming soon too)
Read, watch, and learn. It's not a complicated process. Don't be intimidate with cracking your computer open. It can be done right and safely.
