    I have the new 15" MacBook Pro. Here are the specs.

    15-inch: 2.53GHz
    Intel Core 2 Duo
    4GB Memory
    250GB hard drive
    SD card slot
    Built-in 7-hour battery
    NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics

    Forgive me for being a total neophyte.

    Well... you can also replace your SuperDrive with a second HDD.

    Short of ram and hard drive, no laptops are expandable. The MBP is no exception. You can add more ram or a larger HD, or as the other poster mentioned you can pull the optical drive in liu of a second HD

    Actually you can do anything even changing CPU or GPU but that needs many skills such as soldering.

    Basically only RAM and HDD are good.

    lol that soldering isnt possible by hand

    i suppose you "could" do it if you had the machine just like you "could" build yourself your very own custom laptop lol
