    Hi, I'm looking to get some new parts for my mom's laptop for her for christmas. Let me start off by telling you what she does.

    She like to take a lot of pictures, and she likes to have them all available on the drive. She is also a teacher, and saves documents alot.

    Her current specs are:

    MacBook 13"
    1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo
    1.5 GB DDR2 Memory
    60 GB Hard drive

    Now, the hard drive seems to be on its way out so will this one work fine?

    I'm assuming that the best option for her would be a big 7200 RPM one, so I chose this one.

    And also, would OWC be the best way to go for ram? Thanks for all your help, any input appreciated!

    Upgrade her to 3gb's of ram, which I believe is the maximum capacity of that machine. And than go ahead and get that HDD for her.

    Thanks - just bought the drive. I also bought 2 gigs of ram because OWC said that was the max, since I believe it is a MacBook 1,1.
