    I have a 2.33 C2D MacBook Pro with 2 GB and a 120 GB HD.

    I wanted to get a new HD. I need more space, but thought I could use some extra speed too. Is a 7200 RPM HD going to be worth the extra money and speed, and how much worse is batter life?

    And I wanted to get more ram. I was going to get rid of one stick, and replace it with a 2 GB stick. Since all Macs are 667 mhz, will the computer work with the stock 667 MHZ DDr2 and a different companies 800 mhz DDr2?

    I know the 800 will be reduced to 667, but I can't find any 667 mhz, and I don't want to buy Apple ram because its a rip off.

    Are you sure you're looking in the right place? It took me about 10 seconds to find this: Cheap Mac Memory from OWC

    They also have hard drives at a cheap price.

    I would get just 667 RAM. Some 800 RAM will not work.
