Well, I have a 2Ghz CD Intel MacBook, and after going through hell with the last two upgrade I'm going to try to do this one more time: Hard Drive; Looking for 250GB storage, around 130 or so. I cannot shell out too much more. I purchased a WD Scorpio that went defective on me after installing Leopard, so I had to ship that back. I am not looking at this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152094 Same specs, and cheaper, but its hard when some reviews are positive and others are negative, and then having to ship it back and wait ANOTHER 2 weeks for them to fill the freaking RMA. RAM; 2GB. I purchased a 1x2GB stick (Kingston) and Photoshop kept crashing every 2 or 3 reloads, so I shipped that back as well when people decided to wait and tell me a 2GB stick wouldnt be proper in my MacBook AFTER I bought it. So here's what I got: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820134372 2x1GB sticks, should do the job. Anything else? Remember, college student = Barely any money (or food, yes, they make you starve in these dorms).
