    I am currently using a 13" Black Macbook MacBook3,1 Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz 6GB OWC RAM and 150GB HD, running OS X 10.5.8.

    After my recent RAM upgrade I am looking to do a 500GB 7200RPM HDD and Snow Leopard upgrade.

    This will be my first attempt at a HDD upgrade not sure what device to buy Seagate, Hatachi, WD.

    I was planning on backing up iTunes, Pictures, Word Documents and some other stuff to an external and then doing a clean install of Snow Leopard then transferring back the saved documents from my external.

    Any help or suggestions would be great!

    Brand does not matter - all platter-based hard drives are essentially the same. Go with the one that best fits your budget and that has the best warranty.
