Hi all. im new to the site. i cant find any reliable info while searching the net. My MB is getting a bit sluggish and i am constantly battling a full hard drive. I am a sound engineer and i use the laptop for recording primarily (i use fairly heavy programs). I want to know what is the max memory i can put into my laptop and what memory specs should i be looking at to insure compatibility. I have included more info below in case it is needed. I also want to replace my hard dive with a 750 gig-1tb drive. For speed i understand i will need minimum 7200-spin speed. I can see there are drives with quicker spin speed. Can my MB utilise extra spin speed and is it advisable with a larger drive to decrease read time.

Thanks in advance,
