    hi, this is my first post. and i apologize for any reposts on this topic.

    im thinking of upgrading my macbook. i currently have a 120gb HD and 1gb of ram!

    is there a maximum capacity of storage a macbook can handle? on the apple website they say that its a maximum of 200gb? is that true?

    and where can i get cheap HD for my macbook?

    followed by cheap RAM?

    THANKS in advance guys!

    you can find good deals on hard drives at www.newegg.com
    you need 2.5" sata 9 mm hard drive

    you can find good deals on ram at lots of places like newegg, crucial, and owc

    I haven't seen any notebook drives that have a larger capacity than 200GB. I love the Hitachi 200GB 72K; it screams for a notebook drive, but it is on the expensive side.

    OWC (macsales.com) for good, inexpensive RAM.

    As long as you have a Core 2 Duo CPU you can use the 3GB upgrade. Core Duo's can only take 2GB.

    Your also on a Macbook Pro. Might be different for a Macbook.
