    I just bought my friends 2007 MacBook from him and had it restored (out of the box set-up),running Snow Leopard.

    This is my first Mac, and I love it.

    However, the hard drive is only about 80 gb and I would like to buy an external hard drive.

    I looked under the "About This Mac" to try and figure out which USB it has, but I'm not sure. I think it is 1.10.

    I know nothing about the differences between USB 2.0 and 3.0, so I'm not sure what kind of hard drive to pick up.

    What do you recommend?

    You have USB 2.0. Go with that. You could also upgrade the internal hard drive if you wanted.

    All MacBooks have USB 2.0.

    You can find specs on all Apple products:
    • By visiting EveryMac.com
    • By using Mactracker
    • By entering your serial number here to find specs for your model. (Be aware that some models can use more RAM than Apple shows. Check EveryMac or MacTracker to verify.)
