    Hello,

    I am thinking of upgrading the hard drive. What is the maximum size the MacBook will take, and also if I got a 7200rpm would this be ok in it.

    Thanks

    The largest drive available at present is the WD scorpio 320GB
    (might be other makes available at 320GB)This is a 5400 drive
    unless you use final cut/rendering id stick with the 5400

    Will the MacBook recognise the 320gb drive. I don't want to waste my money if it will only see 250gb

    Thanks

    FAT32 love in OSR2

    48-bit LBA might be a larger concern nowadays.

    Many thanks for all your replies. I did indeed find the long thread. I ordered the 2.2 white macbook yesterday along with an ACD. I did not upgrade anything as Apples prices are very expensive. I have ordered 4gb ram from Play.com (£55.98 and free postage). I will have a look around and get this drive for myself. I'm selling my Aluminium mac to put that towards it. I converted to Mac last year and have not looked back.
