Thread: Swapping SSD from one MBP to Another

  1. #1
    Default Swapping SSD from one MBP to Another
    I just recently installed a SSD into my 13" Early 2011 MBP. I have upgraded to the 15" Late 2011 MBP and I wanted to know if I could take out my SSD from my 13" into my 15". Is it that simple to just do that? Would it work?

    I read a few articles stating if it has been the new MBP 2012, the drivers and graphics wouldn't be compatible. Theoretically, I think it would work but I don't want to try and mess anything up.

    Also, would my old HDD from my 13" (320GB Transcend) work in my 15" MBP if I was to just plug it in?

    Thanks for any info in advance.

    You should be able to install your SSD from the 13" in the 15" without any problems. If not, just reinstall Mac OS X once the SSD in installed.

    I assume your 320GB is in an external enclosure? I have a USB/FireWire utility drive that I boot multiple Macs from (Mac Pro, iMac, MacBook Pro, MacBook, Mac Mini) without hassle.
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!
