    Hello everyone,
    Here is some info on my macbook:
    Hardware Overview:

    Model Name: MacBook
    Model Identifier: MacBook2,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2.16 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1
    Total Number Of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 4 MB
    Memory: 2 GB
    Bus Speed: 667 MHz
    Boot ROM Version: MB21.00A5.B07
    SMC Version (system): 1.17f0
    Serial Number (system): W872909JYQ7

    I have ran into a space issue before, and managed to get by using programs like xslimmer and some that showed me what was taking up what space. I have done whatever i can think of to make free space. I deleted everything in my downloads, used all kinds of programs to make apps smaller, and stuff like that.
    Basically, my issue is that I just had to delete some movies to make room for a patch to a game I play. This game is coming out with an expansion pack soon, and will probably take up a lot of space. (not sure how much)

    I have gotten an error saying something like "hardisk running low on space" or something like that.

    I do not know what to do to free up space. Maybe I should invest in a new macbook?
    If so, whats good for me?

    Thanks

    You can circumvent getting a new MacBook by getting a bigger HDD, either internal (up to 640/750 GB with a 2.5" S-ATA HDD with a maximum height of 9.5mm) or an external 2.5" or 3.5" of up to 1 or 2 TB to store your data on or to make backups, in case the internal fails, which is more likely to happen if it is constantly full and has less than 10% of its capacity free.
    www.macsales.com or www.newegg.com are trusted online shops for north american residents.

    Internal or external, if external: mobile (2.5", no power adapter) or for the desktop (3.5", with power adapter)?
