    Hi all,

    I was wondering if it was possible to replace, further down the line, the drive in a Macbook? It would appear not, but I just wanted to make sure.

    I'm torn between the two white Macbooks and really the only reason I'd get the 2.0GHz one is to be able to burn dvds. The extra speed is not so much an issue.

    Naturally I could always get an external burner, but I'd prefer to not have to lug that around.

    I assume you're talking about replacing the optical drive. The answer is that it can be done, but it's not necessarily easy, and it will likely void your warranty if someone other than an Apple-authorized tech does it. Replacing the optical is not a do-it-yourself job according to Apple.

    Cool. That's exactly what I was wondering. Thanks WildCowboy.
