A friend has a Macbook 2,1 (2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (13-inch White) MB062LL/A) with a 120GB drive. He is out of space. In fact, I think he has 10 GB left. He asked me what to do and I suggested upgrading the hard drive. He's got his whole drive backed up through time machine and a snow leopard dvd available.
My question is what y'all recommend as an aftermarket drive to put in that laptop. He's not a heavy user, and the laptop works fine, he just needs loads more space.
A quick google turned up this: http://tinyurl.com/3l494zr which has two drives that are $85.00. 1) 640 GB 5400 RPM SATA-3.0Gb/s 8MB Apple Hard Drive\t 2) 500 GB 7200 RPM SATA-3.0Gb/s 16MB Apple Hard Drive.
That price seems reasonable to me, but I thought that perhaps someone on this board would have something to say about which reseller was the most reliable, things to think about, and prices, and maybe about how much storage vs drive speed considerations.
Any and all tips are helpful.
I also already saw that his laptop can have a max 2GB of RAM, which it has.
