Gadget says that the box is indistinguishable from the ones produced in Cupertino. Also, the packaging is really convincing. If it wasn’t made from plastic – instead of aluminum, like the original – it may even fool a lot of people. More »

Now, installing it (on the 901 at least) is a breeze, because you can just use the built-in screwdriver to open your 901′s guts and remove the current 4GB SSD.
