    I am looking to upgrade my black macbook. I have upgraded macbook pros before, but never the regular one. What HD should I get (please give links to amazon)? I want the largest capacity possible. Also, do you have any links with videos on how to replace the HD and the RAM?

    Brand does not matter. Just make sure it has a 5-year warranty.

    I wanted to upgrade my 160GB HD in my Unibody Macbook and after some research, I opted for the Seagate Momentus Hybrid 500GB. With the added 4GB of flash storage it promises SDD-like performace for many common tasks at a fraction of the cost. Plus with a 32MB HD cache and 7200RPM it seems like a decent drive even without the SDD-like features. I've got another thread on here about that drive and so far people who have tried it really seem to like it, but I've not received mine yet (should come today).

    Brand does matter, numerous people have had an issue (myself included) with Western Digital HD’s randomly freezing every few seconds and interactions with the MacBook’s built in motion sensor. Look into it, there is plenty of info about it.
    The best HD’s I have ever had have all been Toshiba’s.
