Hello Mac users,

I am new to the forums and I need some advice.

I was wondering what can I upgrade my 2007 Macbook Pro. Here is the link for the specs.

MacBook Pro (Late 2007, 2.4/2.2GHz) - Technical Specifications

15 inches ^^^

I don't know if upgrading the video card is possible or any components of the mac. Hopefully I can some feedback. Thank you.
QUOTE Thanks

All you can really do is max the ram out to 4gb and consider changing the hard drive for an SSD if you're after a little more performance.

You can't upgrade the video card.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

As mrplow mentioned...ram and storage. But it's hard to say exactly what you can specifically do...because you didn't tell us the specs of your computer.

That machine will max at 6gb of RAM (a 4gb and a 2gb card), but you can put any 2.5" laptop drive in it.

If you've got $120, buy a 1tb SSHD drive.. it'll make that laptop scream!
