Help me upgrade my MacBook HD! There have been previous threads covering topics around this, and they threw up a few interesting ideas, but I need some specifics.
Basically, I want to upgrade the 80GB drive in my late '06 2GHz Intel MacBook to at least 160GB, but I'm not sure where to go. This link I found on a previous thread seems to be a good option
, but I'd like to know if others here have shopped there with good experiences, or whether there might be another, closer, cheaper option for me (I'm in Ireland, by the way).
I don't want to shop blindly -- I want to be sure that whatever I get is going to fit. Which is why I'm asking the hive mind.
Also, regarding the options available at that link above: the less I have to spend the better, so is the Hitachi Travelstar recommended? I don't care too much for HD speed, as I don't use my MacBook for anything too intensive (I'm not a gamer or a film-maker; I just want the extra space for installing XP or Vista with Boot Camp in the near future).
And: what's the best way for me to migrate? Do I need to get an enclosure for the new drive and clone my present disk onto that? Or can I use the external drive I already have for that?
