    Upgrading hard drive on a 2010 white macbook
    Ok, I have a 4gb Ram and 250gb hard drive late 2010 Macbook but only have 16gb of space left on my hard drive. I am thinking of putting a 500gb or a 1TB SATA drive into my machine but am not sure of its capabilities. Does anyone have any advice on upgrading my hard drive please?

    Thanks in advance

    Currently, the largest hard drive that can be placed in your white MacBook is a 750 GB model by Western Digital. Anything larger in capacity will not fit in the hard drive cavity. The drive you buy must be SATA and have these dimensions: 2.5" wide, and 9.5 mm thick.
