    No need for all caps, it looks like screaming. Just write like you normally would an email or text document.

    As for the HDD upgrade, yes, 1 TB will work fine, and you also need a USB enclosure for 2.5" S-ATA HDDs to clone the old HDD to the new HDD via CarbonCopyCloner (version 3.4.7 is still free) or SuperDuper!. Time Machine will take much longer.
