So I just paid £200 for a new SSD hard drive (Crucial said it was a suitable upgrade for my MacBook Pro 15" mid 2012).

But this isn't what I was expecting to see. :(

What am I looking at? Why didn't it look like the iFixit guide?

That definitely looks like a Mid-2012 MacBook Pro Retina.

  • Yeah that looks like it. Thanks Allen. Drives for these things are much harder to replace and cost twice as much :( – Aidan Ewen Nov 24 '17 at 12:09
  • Yes, - however, I am trying to find a link to somewhere that indicated an "adapter" was available to use the "regular" M2 SSDs and that High Sierra was compatible with it. If/when I find it, I will edit my answer so you have a path to go down to upgrade this MBP. – Allan Nov 24 '17 at 12:11

    See this relevant post on compatible NVM drives. They should work in the 2013 MBP – Allan Nov 24 '17 at 12:18
