    Good point! As it happens the SSD and Wi-Fi are changeable on my MacBook Pro as well. I can't comment on the newer models though! But I'm fairly sure at least the SSD can be changed.

    While the SSD in a new MacBook Pro can technically be removed, you can’t replace it because of the T2 security chip.

    I don’t understand why people would throw good money after bad - let the 2007 machine retire peacefully.

    Why retire when it still works perfectly with current software.
