This article:

http://www.appleinsider.com/article.php?id=1750

says that the disk inside the MacBooks is user-replaceable (ie without
dismantling the machine). That's good.

Can't find any other reports of this, I'm guessing Google's spiders are
catching up with the news.

I read this last night - remove the battery then a foil shield and you
gain access to the HDD. More straightforward than at present with an
iBook. :-)

The close-up of the keyboard in that article made me think "Z88".

I hope it's as silent as the Z88 k/b...

Yes, strange that. Have you actually put ALGOL on your CV then?

I'm hoping to produce a VALGOL compiler for Darwin ;-)

Too bad Apple didn't make the Intel iMacs with user-replacable HDs.
As it is, one must go through an entire dismantling process to replace
the HD, unless he wants to send it into Apple, or bring it to an Apple
store.


Please reply to the original newsgroup and thread,
so that the conversation may continue undisturbed.

Update: - the video <http://youtube.com/watch?v=8c6ckjy-gdY>

It's easier than replacing a Tibook HDD and that was straightforward.
