Need a Manual for Your MacBook Pro?

"If you are waiting for the delivery of a new Macbook Pro or if you are still hesitating, you should know that Apple released the user's manuals of the new models."

You can download them all from Apple now: 13-inch Macbook Pro, 15-inch MacBook Pro and 17-inch Macbook Pro all available as PDF. The manuals include instructions on how to change out the hard drives and batteries so apparently doing so will not void your warranty, at least that is what HardMac is saying. I think I would get verification from Apple before doing so, but it does sound reasonable. I mean, why else would they put it in the manual if it wasn't ok with them for you to change those out?

iFixIt's Christmas Present to You, and Me

"The website "iFixIt" has been a goldmine of information and how-to instructions for repairing various models of Macintosh that have been released over the years, starting with the "Pismo" PowerBook G3 in 2004. Their take-apart manuals have been filled with detailed photographs and illustrations that clearly show the steps for replacing parts, and accessing components for servicing. On December 15th, they licensed all of their repair manuals to the public for free."

Quite possibly "the largest free release of repair documentation ever," iFixIt announced the gift yesterday on their blog. They do have a ton of information, with manuals for 91 Mac models, 34 iPods and several iPhones. Nice resource and now under the Creative Commons BY-NC-SA License you can access it for free.
