Hi, this is my first post on here although whenever i do any googling I normally end up back on here for the best research, so I thought i'd join up! My girlfriends dad offered me his old macbook because he'd upgraded to a mbp and with my .... hp laptop's fan deafening me I thought I'd gladly accept. Also I have an iphone an want an ipad soon which swayed me even more. My girlfriend also has a mac so I know the basics of getting around. But its a bit sluggish compared to my current laptop and thats about 5 years old to, it's also suffering from a knackered battery so i've risked an ebay one which is on its way for 16 pound delivered! I feel like a project and i'm amazed at how may people still love and used the old macbooks which made me want to do it even more especially seeing the potential in them! I think I can upgrade to 4gb ram knowing only 3.3 will be used. Alongside that give it a good de-dust then i'll get a 128mb samsung ssd hard drive as they seem to make the biggest difference. Also upgrade to Lion if possible as I want the face time etc and feel it looks a bit fresher. If not a fresh install of SL but I don't have the discs which is why Lion is tempting. Could anyone confirm I can do the above and advise on the RAM I need as crucial memory only show I can only have 2x1gb Specs from crucial and profiler are: MacBook 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (13-inch Black) MA701LL/A Model Identifier: MacBook2,1 Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor Speed: 2 GHz Number Of Processors: 1 Total Number Of Cores: 2 L2 Cache: 4 MB Memory: 1 GB Bus Speed: 667 MHz Boot ROM Version: MB21.00A5.B07 SMC Version (system): 1.13f3 Every mac says it's from 2006 to May 2007 and it can have the 4gb ram but I don't know which one to choose from crucial?? Sorry for the long post i'm just excited about hopefully getting this up to speed!
