    Hi

    If I buy a Macbook with minimal spec, and upgrade RAM and HD myself, assuming I buy the right HD, can I just slap the blank one into Macbook and put the OS CD/DVD into drive and install? Would it work so simply?

    Many thanks

    Dom

    First boot from the disk in the computer already to make sure everything works.

    I would run it that way for about 10 days then switch it.
