5* Use as internal drive in a Mac
Reviewed by Chris on 12/11/2011
Using this to replace the internal drive in a MacBook: The case has no screws, but with some use of finger nails the top of the case can be loosened on the sides, and then lifted off. Pull off the tiny USB adapter (there goes the warranty sticker) and you are left with a Samsung internal drive with the standard connector. Easily swapped with the internal drive of any MacBook and any reasonably new MacBook Pro.

After swapping, boot from what is now the the external drive, use Disk Utility to format the new drive (one partition, MacOS X Extended Journaled, under "Options" pick GUID partition table), then use "Restore" to copy the contents of the old drive to a new drive. So new 500 GB drive, and you're left with a spare external drive in a pretty case.
