    Okay heres how it is...:rolleyes:

    I live in the UK and come september time i need to buy a new laptop for school. It needs to be reasonably powerful and have storage space.
    (WHY WONT APPLE BRING OUT MACPRO 13.3 :rolleyes: )

    Anyway, i am looking at the macbook but apple charge soooooo much for upgraded RAM and hard drives, so i will probably end up buying a 2.0 GHz without upgrades, so...

    could ya'll post links to UK sites where is can buy cheap hard drives that fit in the macbook easilly (120gb or summit).

    Also links to sites that sell macbook compatible RAM, 2GB as cheap as possible :rolleyes:

    So i will probs end up with a macbook 2.0, 2gb ram, 120 gb hd :rolleyes: :cool: (darn i want a macpro 13 :()

    Okay ta.

    Batman.

    Check out this thread for UK RAM - Lots of sites for you to choose from.

    As for hard drive, I'd go to dabs.com and check these out.

    Hope that helps. :)

    eBuyer.com is cheaper and more reliable than dabs.com - my father's company ended up almost suing dabs once for screwing up order after order. :rolleyes:

    Really? I've never used ebuyer, or had a bad experience with dabs. Strange - I'll give them a go next time. Thanks for the tip.
