Pre-unibody MBP service manual

Recommended Posts

MBP service manual, dated 20 Feb 2006



I used it for installing an SSD, and while I was at it, removing that pesky little auto-sleep magnet. My late 2007 MBP internals are slightly different than the manual's, esp. re: the magnet, but close enough to figure out. Closed flat, running SSD quiet, and powered by battery makes the MBP a sexy little solid state server.


BTW, these older MBPs can take up to 6gb (2+4) of RAM, but you give up a percentage point or two in the Memory and Stream scores using Geekbench 2.1, due, I believe, to the loss of the dual channel memory functionality, which requires two RAM sticks of the same size. I don't know what Amarra values more, a 2gb greater RAM pool (over 4gb) or a point or two of Stream performance. Anybody have an idea?




PS Thanks for the contributions to this site. What a resource!
