The reason that I bought the hard drive and install kit was that I am going away to college and had very little space left on my internal drive. I could have bought a new computer from Apple, but the only reason to do so was to get a bigger hard drive. Instead, I bought this package and was able to save over one thousand dollars.
Ordering the hard drive and install kit ran very smoothly. I was glad that the parts that I needed were available at such an affordable cost. I received my package on time and it was even slightly early. The installation process was even easier than I expected and the instructions that were included were written in a simple, clear and concise way. I was able to install my hard drive quite quickly after cloning the original with the program SuperDuper. The cloning process took a long time, but no more than it should have. The install was very simple and ran smoothly. I am extremely glad that the screwdriver set came with the package, or I would not have been able to do anything. I was surprised with my abilities because this was the first time that I had ever worked on my computers internal hardware and I was rather nervous. Thanks iFixit for writing an easy-to-follow install guide and giving me peace of mind. I will definitely turn to iFixit the next time I need a piece of computer hardware.
When you clone your old hard drive to the new one, make sure you have something to do for about 3 or 4 hours, and that you won't need your computer for that time.
Also, take photos, so you can post them on your own iFixit story. I did not know there would be an opportunity to submit photos of the repair later.
