I'd like to put a larger HD in my MacBook, but I can find any reference to the max size I can put in it. I have an Intel Core Duo MacBook (2GHz). I purchased it around Sept. 2006. The stock 60GB HD is full. I saw a recommendation for a Seagate Momentus 160GB at 7200rpm. Can I go above 160GB? Is there a max that this laptop can handle? I'm leaning towards 7200rpm for better performance, but will this impact battery life??

A couple days ago, my MacBook was stolen by one of my (high school) students. Due to the tireless work of school police and the principal, I now have it back. However, there is a great deal of data missing: pictures, music, documents, and (of course) my GRADEBOOK. Before you say it: Yes, I know I should have backed up to an external hard drive. I know MeFites have recommended companies like DriveSavers to do off-site data recovery, but I'm looking for something I can just download and do myself. I've found a few utilities available for download but I'm not finding anything that would work on an Intel MacBook. Any ideas, other than time travel and an external hard drive?

Should I be worried that my new MacBook's power button is no longer flush with the keyboard surface? It's tilted a tiny bit, and seemed to happen yesterday. Coincidentally, this was the first time I took it out of the house, albeit only briefly. I just got the thing this week, so I'm worried that I've got some sort of new parent syndrome ("My baby doesn't like grabbing my pinky with her left hand as much as her right- is she dying?"). So...is she dying? Should I get to the nearest Apple Store ASAP?
I just bought a MacBook Pro after my dead Toshiba. Interesting. Different. I installed Firefox and moved my bookmarks from my XP computer. But now they're all screwed up on the Mac! They had been ordered alphabetically with the folders full of links on top, but now the folders are on the bottom (having ordered them alphabetically on the Mac). XP keeps folders together and Mac doesn't, it seems (this seems also to be the case in the "Finder"). Let me know if I'm missing something.... Please float my folders....

Last night, suddenly and without provocation, my MacBook started grinding and crackling something fierce, mid-Google Reader browse. I shut it down quickly, savored the adrenaline rush, and started it up again. It wound up with a loud whine that accelerated until... well, it slowly dropped to a low whir. And it continues to whir. But the computer runs (for now) as if there's nothing wrong. My guess is it's the fan. If so, though, what happened? It was so sudden. (And this is not the iMoo.) And does this require Apple service, or can I somehow fix this myself? Should I stop using the MacBook entirely in the meantime? Want to hear the racket?

I was using the headphone jack on my macbook and moved it around slightly when the sound suddenly cut out. I soon realized that the very tip of the headphone plug had broken off and gotten stuck inside the jack, and the rest of the plug remained intact. I tried using a small refrigerator magnet to see if it would draw the broken bit out, but it didn't, and i didn't want to try a more powerful magnet because I don't know where the hard drive is in the computer. I was thinking maybe getting some pointy tweezers and taking the battery out so I don't electrocute myself while poking around in the jack? any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
