    Anyone that has a macbook and upgraded their HD tell me what you upgraded to? I am aiming for at least a 120GB HD as an upgrade. Would it be possible for me to buy a 120GB 7200RPM HD and install it in my MB? If so give me links to the HD or process of instillation please.

    THANKS!

    Black 2.0 MacBook --> MacBook Pro 2.33 is the best upgrade I made to my MacBook.

    Seriously though, get as big a drive as you can.

    Basically you just want a 2.5" Notebook drive that is SATA (not ATA). Here are a bunch for ya to choose from.

    As far as brand goes.. I think most here prefer Seagate and Hitachi.

    I just put the Seagate 160 gig HD in my MB. It was a piece of cake, way, WAY easier than changing out the DC in board on my iBook.

    I also bought This enclosure. When they arrived, I popped the new HD into the enclosure and used SuperDuper to clone the MB HD to the new drive in the enclosure. Then I put the new drive into the MB using the tutorial from ifixit.com You will need a #00 Phillips Screwdriver and a T8 Torx Screwdriver. I already had them on hand, but you can get them at Sears, Radioshack, Lowes etc...
