    Hi, I have a 2007 white macbook and im looking to upgrade the hard drive to a 100-128gb ssd drive. If you have any suggestions on certain mid class drives that would be great, but thats not the real reason for the post. When i upgrade i dont just want to clone my drive to the new one. A while back i tried installing windows via bootcamp and when i go to delete the partition because i dont want windows on the new ssd, bootcamp wont let me. I want to know if i can move all my important programs like word and excel, which require activation codes, to the new drive without bringing the partition with it. If all else fails i do have an extra Mac word code laying around, but it belongs to my father and id have to buy him a new one. So yes, if you have any suggestions for drives please tell me, and if you know a way to get certain things to the new drive but not the partition that would be great.
    Thanks!

    Also I know the macbook can only use sata1, but will a sata2 drive still work?

    I used carbon copy cloned when I upgraded my HD and it only did the mac partition it would not do bootcamp partition so I ended up with only mac os I had to redo bootcamp after an reinstall my windows 7. So if you use cc cloned should be ok to clone and only have mac os
