    Specs:
    early 2007 White Macbook. 2.16 GHz Core 2 Duo, 2 Gb ram, 120 Gb HDD. OSX 10.6.8 SL
    white macbook hard drive upgrade
    I wont be doing this anytime soon if, i do it at all , but it would be handy to know. I have the late 2006 macbook (I don't need a new one, it does every thing i need).
    1. I'm using 80Gb HDD. If i was to upgrade, will any laptop 2.5 inch sata work or is it more specific.
    2.I know how to install it hardware wise, but how hard is it software wise to install OSX snow leopard.
    3.Is it hard to transfer data between them.

    hope y'all can help

    Practically any 2.5" SATA hard drive will work. Only when you get into really large capacity drives (upwards of 1 terabyte drives)...do you possibly get into a thickness fitting issue.

    Boot from the Snow Leopard install disk...and follow the onscreen instructions.

    There's not a whole lot of point looking at specific hard drives now...if this project is something you may never do. When you're ready to do it...let's talk.
