    awesome!

    I just hope what I have left (~27 gigs) is enough...

    I did dedicate 9 gigs to XP though so...

    I guess I'll just get a external HD or something, perhaps a 60 gig ipod and use it as a HD as well

    guess gives me another reason to ditch out another 300 bux lol

    man, I wish my LCD screen was white... it would match up real nice... but its black

    maybe I SHOULD have spent the 200 extra bux and gotten teh black macbook... (I did hear in time the handrest etc. gets all glossy from friction from hands and stuff though)

    Okay, I know we get asked a lot of repeat questions here, but occasionally it's worth looking into the matter anyway guys - don't just shoot from the hip.

    http://manuals.info.apple.com/en/Mac...dDrive_DIY.pdf (Warning PDF link)

    The macbook's harddrive is covered by the same metal cover that is over the RAM compartment. So when you access the RAM bay, the harddrive is easily removed by tugging the plastic strip attatched to it.

    You will NOT void your warranty by replacing the harddrive OR ram in your macbook. (Apple even provides end-user instructions on how to do it).

    This is a first for apple's laptops and does not apply to any other 'books (Macbook Pro, iBook, Powerbook harddrives are all non end-user replaceable)

    Just wanted to ask if someone could post what HDD exactly would I need to purchase so I can upgrade my MB and also how do I go about saving the items from my current HDD?
