Which macbook model can replace or upgrade hard disk?

Many MacBook models have user-upgradable hard disks, but this depends on the specific model and year. In general, MacBook models released before 2012 have user-upgradable hard disks, while models released after 2012 have solid-state drives (SSDs) that are more difficult to upgrade.

Here are some MacBook models that have user-upgradable hard disks:


    1. MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012 – 2015)
    2. MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2012 – 2015)
    3. MacBook Pro (17-inch, Early 2011 and earlier)
    4. MacBook (Late 2009 – 2011)
    5. MacBook Air (Late 2010 – 2017)

It’s important to note that even if a MacBook model has a user-upgradable hard disk, the process of upgrading the hard disk may require some technical knowledge and experience. If you’re not comfortable with this, it’s recommended that you take your MacBook to Esmond Service Centre for assistance.

Non-Upgradable MacBook Models

Most MacBook models released after 2012 have SSDs that are not user-upgradable because they are soldered onto the logic board. Here’s a list of MacBook models with non-upgradable SSDs:

  1. MacBook (2015 to 2017)
  2. MacBook Pro (Late 2016 to present)
  3. MacBook Air with Retina Display (2018 to present)

It’s worth noting that you can customise the capacity of your preferred SSD when purchasing on Apple Store Online.
