Hi everyone, As the topic states, I'm new the forums. For a long time I've admired and wanted a MacBook but could never justify it as I either never had the funds or was in between getting a laptop to go to college with a couple years ago. Well, the time has come and I'm finally financially able to start considering a MacBook. I definitely want the new aluminum uni-body one. However, I do have a few concerns , so I'm turning to you guys for advice and or help. First off, a close friend of mine has a 2.16GHZ white MB from late 2007, several months ago his HD crashed and only recently was able to afford to replace it and got it working again. From my understanding, this is a potentially common problem as Mac's have less than impressive Hard Drives. What I am considering is ordering a "better" HD and installing it myself as soon as I get the MacBook, thus adding more space and having a faster RPM as well. I would like to do the same with the RAM and upgrade it to 4g, but do it myself as I would the HD. My main question is this, would you guys recommend doing this? And if so is fairly fool proof? I understand nothing is fail safe, but more or less would this be? I want to use the MB mainly for music recording and occasional leisure use as I'll still have my Dell with Vista for school work and research.
