Help me upgrade my Macbook's hard drive

I'm looking to buy a new Macbook as a secondary computer, however, I want it to be the sole host to my 60gb iPod. I currently have a Toshiba laptop, which has an 80BG hard drive. After two years of use, I've realized I need at least a 120 GB hard drive in any new laptop I get. I don't want to shell out the cash for Apple to throw an upgraded drive in ($250!!!!), but instead I want to buy a new hard drive off ebay or something and replace the 80GB one inside the fresh Macbook. Since I'm only accustomed to the Windows OS -- How do I go about doing this for an Apple computer? Also, does anyone know where I can get a good deal on a laptop drive? :) [more inside]

Receiver of Stolen ebay merchandise

I bought an ibook recently on ebay here in Australia. I've just been emailed by the police today, informing me that the laptop was stolen merchandise. I'm resigned to the fact that I'll have to return the laptop to the original owner. (I would want no less if it was stolen from me) - but do I have a chance of getting compensation from ebay? the laptop was about $1,200 AUD. Any tips on approaching ebay and negotiating this are very welcome.

How do I easily, quickly and twice daily sync two computers

I want to easily and quickly synchronize my work laptop with my home office desktop every evening when I get home, and visa versa just before I leave for work. What software and what hardware do I need. Cost is not a primary issue, but time and convenience are. A seamless "plug this here" "two clicks there" operation is my goal. Machine 1/2 is backup for machine 2/1 every 12 hours.
