Apple doesn't do upgrades or upgrade exchanges. OWC is the only option AFAIK. They have a good reputation and you can review the install video to see if you are comfortable with it. If you don't buy the kit, you should at least order the Torx T5 and Pentalobe T5 screwdrivers needed to do the upgrade. Make sure to double-check the model number as explained ...

Yes, but I've heard Apple uses proprietary firmware on their SSDs (I could be wrong), however OWC does make SSDs specifically for the 2015 Retina MacBook Pro, so it appears they've figured out how to make replacements. Here's the link. I'm not affiliated with them, but have bought RAM and a replacement Mac battery from them, both of which work great.

Based on this iFixit guide (see step 13), you seem to have disconnected the subwoofer/right speaker cable incorrectly, damaging the socket in the process (supported by this diagram on page 185 of the Apple Technician Guide of the logic board, labels working counterclockwise from the top right.) Page 113 of the same guide details how to properly remove ...

In 10.10 your mail files are stored in ~/Library/Mail/V2 while in 10.11 they are in ~/Library/Mail/V3. This is also due to Apple making changes in the mail app so the only way you can move them over from 10.10 to 10.11 is to setup a new mailbox in Mail and manually import each .mbox file.

Yes, you can go ahead and install El Capitan to the smaller partition. You just need to run the "Install OS X El Capitan" application and select the proper destination volume. I would first use the Disk Utility application to erase this destination volume. You do not have to use a USB drive to install El Capitan. During the installation, the Recovery ...

Note the original question asked why Apple shipped an old version of bash and then asked how to upgrade. This is an answer to the original. If the question is just the latter then it is a duplicate You would have to ask Apple as to why. However I would note that bash is now licensed under GPLv3 and 3.2.57 is the last version released under GPL2. As bash ...

MacTracker says this version MacBookPro2,2 can have Mac OS X 10.7.5 as maximum OS. As 10.7.5 needs at least 2GB memory and you have 3GB, I think you would have no problem upgrading to 10.7.5.

I believe it will only show up as internal if it's connected to the internal bus on the motherboard. Anything else will display as external. You can change the icons if you want it to look like an internal drive from Finder.

I have ordered and installed the new SSD product from OWC for upgrading that specific model of MacBook Pro. The ordering process was simple, payment went through without problems and the drive was delivered 2 days later even though I'm in Europe. The package came with great instructions and even the necessary screwdrivers. On the other hand, the SSD is ...

I've bought a number of OWC products include SSD's for older MBP and MBA models. Always been satisfied. That said, I recall reading a review that said there was a problem installing Bootcamp on the latest upgrades so I'd check with OWC tech support before ordering.

Note that the ...

The solution for fixing Boot Camp Assistant was the same as with previous versions of the OS: reset the NVRAM. I found a discussion mentioning a similar problem with an upgrade to Yosemite here that I intiially disregarded as it referenced repairing permissions and running a Disk Verify, neither of which Disk Utility appears to support anymore. As for ...

The "downside" is that you lose the hardware. That's Apple's entire incentive for offering this exchange feature. If you're ok with the reality that you must exchange the phone you "half-own" in order to receive a new model early, there is nothing further that should stop you.
