I have a 13.3 macbook. Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0ghz, 2gig ram, 80gb HD.

A few questions.

1. Whats the most amount of ram it can handle?
2. How big of a HD can it handle?
3. How much can i upgrade this thing?

I just got this yesterday. and so far i love it. just want to know what can be done? i need a bigger HD than 80gig. thats kinda weak haha.

Looks like you have an early Core 2 Duo model, which means your machine supports a maximum of 3GB of RAM and theoretically the largest laptop drive you can stick in there with the appropriate connector. I personally upgraded mine to 250GB but you could easily stick one of those 500GB or even 640GB drives in there. 7200RPM is even a possible option.
