    Hello, I've never upgraded one of my computers so my ideas may not be completely possible.

    I want to upgrade my 2008 black MacBook to be suitable for lion. The display burnt out and needs to be replaced and I wondered if it was possible to install a new LED display from a 13in macbook.

    I would also like to put 4 gigs of ram with one of the new i7 processors. Is it difficult/possible to install an i7 on a black MacBook?

    You cannot put in a newer model display, you cannot put in an upgraded CPU. You can only upgrade the ram and the hard drive. You can put in 4Gb of ram.
