    Anyone have any information (or opinion) on the best way to beef up a new 13"MBP? I have a 500gb Western Digital Hard Drive in my white MB, and am wondering if I could swap it into a new MBP, or if there is something "new" that wouldn't allow that. Also, what sort of memory should I load up into a new 13"MBP - That is, if I dont want to spend $1k upgrading to 8gb. Are these the goods?: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231213

    Thanks a lot!

    Yeah you can reuse your hard drive

    And I'd recommend this ram

    it's gotten much better reviews on newegg and is only $5 more
    and purposely for Apple notebooks (not sure that that makes a difference though) but most of the reviews are from people putting them in macbooks

    There may be the possibility that the new laptops have some extra bits in the OS for their new hardware that won't be released for other laptops until SL, but then again they may have already come out with the latest update for Leopard.
