Finally part of the family! Just grabbed a mid 2009 macbook 5,2 with a 120 ssd and 4 gigs of ram earlier this morning. Think i made out alright as I was working on a budget and talked him down from $300 to $250. Already super psyched messing around with it! Now onto what little i can improve on, haha. The previous owner wiped it and brought left ml on it. A friend of mine is giving me some programs tomorrow morning. I would also love to get maverick up and running. Should i install those programs first and then upgrade to M or just setup M first and then install those programs? Also should i even back it up as there isn't anything really on it? Thanks for any help guys. Outside of that, i do intend to get it up to 6 gigs of ram, which i think is its max, and a 240 ssd as well. With the leftover money, grabbed some used soundsticks as well. Someone has a new setup, haha. Pics to come in a bit.
