So heres the breakdown: LINK TO MACBOOK MODEL SPECS: http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/macbook/specs/macbook-core-2-duo-2.0-white-13-late-2007-santa-rosa-specs.html My cousin gave me his old macbook cuz it doesn't work. From what he told me, it needs a new HardDrive, and dvd drive to put the operating system disc in and install it. Also I want to max out the RAM and maybe upgrade to a 500-7500gb Hard Drive. As far as the function of the laptop, when I power it on, it gets to the apple logo, then the gear spins for a while, and then the screen is just grey. When he first gave me thw laptop I powered it on and left it on for a while and I got to the log in screen, and was able to access the desktop and stuff. But now it won't even get to the log in screen. And I think i need to replace the cd drive of try to fix it, because when I try to insert any type of disc in it, it will just take it in, and then i assume try to read it, and spit it out. im mainly going to try and use it for running garageband, and maybe pro tools. Any advice on if this macbook will be able to handle audio production will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
