Instructables user Marcintosh likes to do his computer upgrades himself and has developed a system to make these as painless as possible. In this Instructable he shows how to upgrade the internal hard drive of a laptop using his system. His instructions are clear, and easy to understand and take a lot of the mystery out of the internal hard drive laptop upgrade.
We think this is a great way to extend the life of an older machine and this Instructable is chock full of good tips. Of course taking your computer apart yourself does void your warranty, but chances are that you will be doing this on a machine that is long out of warranty so that is not something that you will sweat.
Check out the post on Instructables, for the complete instructions.
