so im getting an ibook
This is my first post btw...

anyways Im excited to say that i will be getting an Ibook shortly and im excited to make the change from pc.

Im planning on getting a 12in ibook but theres a few upgrades i want to do.

through CompUSA if i get an applecare protection plan i get a free 256mb stick of ram :) so thats done for memory.

I want to upgrade the hard drive to 80gb. Heres my question. Can I use any 2.5" mobile HD with my ibook? This would be cheaper than buying one from apple but, how difficult is it to install OSX and such back onto the computer.

I have one more question. instead of office which i don't really want to spend the money on, what programs are there that are good programs that i can use instead of word, excel, and powerpoint. Also comptibility between office and the program would be great..i dunno if its possible or if i should just get office.

Thats all I have for now...

For all office type apps I just use Appleworks. Everything is there!! Neatest spreadsheet I have ever seen!

agree, appleworks works like a charm although i still do prefer MS Word/Excel but no biggie.
