Easier than expected

As a follow up to my recent and voluntary change from a hard disk drive to a solid state disk in my MacBook, I just had to do the same for my iMac. Unfortunately, this time it wasn’t voluntary and slightly more complicated. That’s at least what I thought beforehand. Turns out … despite the fact that one has to take out the screen and ideally put in a new temperature sensor, it’s actually quite simple and done in less than 30 minutes. Which is in fact much less time than it took to restore the disk image on the new drive (several hours via USB). Anyways, up to now everything appears to be stable and even a bit faster than before …  I’m starting to get the hang of taking apart Apple products ;)
