I have purchased a 2TB SSD drive that I want to install in my Mackbook Pro from mid 2009. Can I do that?

Hello,

Yes, you can do that. Since AppleCare has expired, you can replace the drive yourself. Of course, I don't formally recommend it without having some experience, but it isn't a hard procedure. The hardest part is having a way to migrate your data, if you don't have a Time Machine or other backup.

That said, just be very careful, as some of the internal components can be fragile. iFixit - MacBook Pro has some step-by-step guides to help you out. Make sure you select the correct one for your particular MacBook Pro model, and read all of the steps completely.
