I LOVE my 2008 Eggshell white macbook. It's been such a great intro to Mac for me and i simply love it, especially for the price! (100$ au). So i am now limited to 10.7.5 which means more and more the apps i want to use are just not available. Sure i could bootcamp a windows port for a few things, but really i would just like what i have to work for what i want. I know my big limiting factors are the processor and the graphics card, the latter being the big achilles heel. It's equipped with a 2.4ghz intel pro duo 2, and 4gb ram, so not terrible. I also know there is no real upgrade path for the integrated graphics card. So what are my options? I would really like to keep this laptop, so do i have some options to be able to run the latest software? I was thinking along the lines of gutting out most or all the hardware and retrofit a macbook pro board, late 2008 macbook, or something similar. Has this been attempted? Can i dual boot my current version of OSX and a later version that i could only use when i need to use certain apps (as in my 3d printing software). Fully willing to remove the DVD drive and pop in a graphics card if possible, SSD is also quite likely. I originally bought this laptop while backpacking so i would have a cheap laptop that i wouldn't need to stress if it got lifted, but now i love it! So if there are options, i would love to hear them! Thanks!
