    I just picked up a macbook pro 2.16ghz 17" in great condition. I want to "MAX" it out. It right now has 2gb of ram and a 120gb hard drive.

    Is the hard drive SATA? Will it support a 320gb 7200rpm drive (I see they are on sale for just over $100, amazing how cheap upgrade components have become).

    Also I see apple lists the max memory as 2gb, is it possible to upgrade it any further? I am willing and able to do a hardware hack if one is available (I can solder pretty well, I have a steady hand!)

    thanks in advance guys!

    You can upgrade to 3GB usable ram max I believe.

    Awsome buddy, just ordered 2X 2gb crucial ram. I'll update this post when it arrives and let you know how much ram OSx can detect.
