Hey, Im not to familiar with upgrading macbooks, but my major requires me to have a macbook w/ dual superdrive and a 120 gig harddrive. I have a macbook already but it doesnt have a superdrive or a 120 gig HD. Are these upgradeable?

I think it's ridiculous to require those things. They don't matter. You could get an external hard drive, or an external DVD writer. Why does it have to be in the computer? I think it's ridiculous that they require you to have a certain computer in the first place. I have a friend who bought a PowerBook at the beginning of our senior year of high school, and then went to MU, where they required Journalism majors to have MacBooks or MacBook Pro's. She had to buy a new computer just to make them happy.

Why would they require a new computer? If they do the uni should provide them with one, its just wrong to expect every student to be able to drop £1k/$ on a laptop!

Mac: White MacBook 2GHz Intel Core Duo, 60GB HDD, 512MB RAM

Wow. Things sure have changed since i was in college (2001, not that long ago)...they have computer hardware requirements in the curriculum of Journalism classes now?!!

Powerbooks aren't too shabby even by todays standards...what kind of new fancy, processor intensive software do they use that requires no less than 1.83Mhz Core Duo?
